    General Event Information

    The CHaD Winter Carnival is going to be an evening of fun for all ages and abilities! We are pleased to announce that this year's event will be held in a new centralized location at Storrs Hill in Lebanon, NH. Events include the Snow Box Derby, a race to the top, snowshoeing, and more! Grab your best skiing or riding buddy and race down the mountain under the lights. If your friends or family members can't join the fun, ask them to make a pledge supporting your efforts to raise funds for CHaD, the Children's Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock. Prizes will be awarded to participants who raise $250 or more, so start fundraising today!

    CHaD is New Hampshire's only NACHRI approved, comprehensive, full service children's hospital. With sites across the state providing primary, specialty and tertiary care, CHaD's mission is to provide the best pediatric care, in the right place, at the right time, every time.

    Questions? Contact Andrea Pinault at chadwintercarnival@hitchcock.org or 603-650-3469.

    Registration Fees and Fundraising Minimums

    Registration fees are $5 per participant.

    Each participant agrees to a $60 fundraising minimum. A participant's $5 registration fee is included in their fundraising. Therefore, participants pay $5 at the time of registration and must raise or donate an additional $55.

    To encourage children to be inspired by the joy of giving, the Couch Family Foundation will match donations raised by kids! 

    Fundraising minimums are due by Saturday, March 3, 2012.

    To guarantee a registration gift you MUST BE REGISTERED by February 20, 2012.

     

    When you register your credit card is charged a one-time $5 processing fee. Fundraising totals include the $5 registration fee; therefore participants must raise $55 in addition to their $5 registration fee. Fundraising minimums are due by March 3, 2012. Please make sure all of your donations are either made online, mailed in by March 3rd or bring them with you to the event. For participants who do not reach the required minimum of $55 by March 3rd, the difference will be charged to the card given at the time of online registration.
