Winter Wild is Back! #cbhm


Chad Denning, the founder of the Winter Wild series, tragically passed away earlier this year. Chad directed many events in his life but Winter Wild was his brainchild; truly capturing his spirit and energy. Chad Denning was a man of adventure and exploration of all outdoor pursuits and as a tribute to Chad’s legacy, vision, and passion, a small group of his friends will carry on the Winter Wild tradition in his honor.

Winter Wild was born in 2010 at Whaleback Mountain. Inspired by Colorado’s “Up-hilling Series”, Winter Wild consists of getting up and down a mountain as quickly as possible by means of running, skiing or snowboarding, snowshoeing, or hiking the course.

This year’s races will include:
January 31 at Ragged Mountain in Danbury, N.H.
February 14 at Pats Peak in Henniker, N.H.
February 28 at Mount Sunapee in Sunapee, N.H.

[With the full intention of returning to a full series next year]
Chad in 2013 at Suicide Six
Chad loved to compete, but more than anything he loved to see people enjoying the outdoors. In that spirit, everyone is encouraged to join in the fun regardless of experience or ability. Whether it’s 40 above or 4 below, and whether the sun is up or hiding behind the mountains, come out and run-for-Chad!

Team Alzheimers


Long time runner and CBHM veteran Jane Lemire has been involved in fundraising in the Upper Valley since 2003. Jane and her Team of runners pioneered TeamAlzheimers for CBHM in 2004 by turning 15 race entries into $7,000 in donations. Since then, Team Alzheimers has raised over $150,000. All funds are donated to several Upper Valley private non-profit senior organizations that specialize in the care and/or services for people with dementia. TeamAlzheimers is a totally volunteer organization that donates 100% of its proceeds back into the community.

Members of Team Alzheimers commit to raise $350 dollars and are responsible for the $90 registration fee.

David's House
David’s House was founded in 1986 in memory of David Cyr, who passed away at the age of 5 from leukemia. During his many hospitalizations, David often begged his parents to take the other sick and injured children home with him to his house, his safe haven away from the pain and uncertainty of the hospital. David’s House is the realization of David’s dream.

Now, 27 years later, it’s been a home-away-from-home for nearly 13,000 different families from around the world. David’s House is a 20 bedroom home for families of ill or injured children for as little as one night or many, many months while their child is being treated at the Children’s Hospital at DHMC in Lebanon, NH.

Because of the support we receive from generous people like you, we are able to provide support for nearly 1,000 families every year without ever charging any fees.

Members of Team David’s House are encouraged to raise $500 (donations are tax deductible), and are responsible for the $90 race registration fee

In recognition of your generous support, David’s House will provide:
- A gathering tent at the start and finish of the race with team-only snacks and refreshments
- Access to customizable fundraising web pages
- Free team-only post-race massages
- Exclusive runner gifts
- A Team David’s House photo and/or individual runner photo

Health Connections of the Upper Valley



Quitting smoking is akin to running a half marathon. It takes tenacity, fierce determination, and staying the course when the body begs to give up. But nothing worth having comes easy, and the intrinsic reward that comes with quitting nicotine is like the feeling you get after sticking to your training and coming to the end of a long run: You've done it. You've reached your goal. And you can take a deep breath into lungs that are healthy and strong—secure in the knowledge that you've accomplished something special.
Health Connections is calling on runners of the Covered Bridges Half Marathon to help us raise funds needed to support our outreach programs aimed at reducing the risk of tobacco use, obesity, and prescription drug abuse. 
We work with communities to: 
  • Help adults and youth quit tobacco  
  • Educate youth so they never initiate tobacco use or abuse prescription drugs  
  •  Provide nutrition education in schools and healthy cooking classes in after school programs
  •  Increase the walkability and bikeability of towns, and increase opportunities for physical activity
  •  Promote the safe disposal of old medications so they are not accessible to those who may abuse them. 
You can help us make a difference! 
Your fundraising will be used directly to support Health Connections’ outreach initiatives. We are asking runners to raise a minimum of $500, which includes your $90 registration fee (yes, you can fundraise your registration fee).  As a “THANK YOU!”, each runner will receive:
1. A very cool and lightweight Team Health Connections running hat;
2. Transportation of "your stuff" from the race start to the finish;
3. A 10-minute post-race massage; and
4. An emailed team picture.
 TOP THREE FUNDRAISERS will receive FABULOUS Thank You gifts!
Thank you for your support. Please go to our web site at www.myhealthconnections.org to register for the race and to learn more about Health Connections of the Upper Valley.
