Our Mission–David’s House is a 20-bedroom home-away-from-home for families with children receiving medical care through the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. Founded in 1986, we are named in memory of David Cyr who passed away at age five after a long battle with leukemia.
We provide a warm, caring, fully stocked home and support 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for families from around the world, whether they stay with us for one day or for many months while their child receives the medical care they need. We don’t charge a fee for families to stay with us and we don’t receive state or federal funding, so grassroots fundraising is the way we support our ongoing operations.
Toward this end, members of Team David’s House are asked to raise $500, with your $95 registration fee going toward this goal.
In recognition of your commitment to helping us spread the word about our amazing mission and raising funds to support it, David’s House will provide:
- A gathering tent at the start and finish with team-only snacks and refreshments
- Transportation of personal items from the race’s start to the finish locations
- Access to fundraising tips and guidance
- Exclusive runner gifts
- Tons of support and encouragement leading up to and during the race

Our Mission: The Family Place delivers comprehensive programs designed to strengthen positive relationships, teach essential skills and promote enduring healthy growth for families with young children in the Upper Valley and surrounding communities.
The Family Place is a private, non-profit organization founded in 1985 in White River Junction, Vermont, by a group of community members concerned about the well-being of young children. Shortly thereafter, we were designated by the State of Vermont to be the Parent Child Center for the area. Last year, The Family Place reached over 1,700 children from 1,200 families in the Upper Valley region of New Hampshire and Vermont. We offer programs for all families with young children, with an emphasis on intensive, holistic support for those most in need. Our programs address critical quality-of-life issues, including child safety, financial stability, healthy development, mental health, literacy and education, food and housing security. From the beginning, we have maintained a strong focus on the most vulnerable young children; we are the primary provider of prevention and intervention programs for children birth to three.
Team members commit to raising $500 and The Family Place will pay the $95 registration fee.
In recognition of your hard work, our runners will enjoy these benefits:
- A gathering tent with food and water at the race’s start and finish
- Transportation of personal items at the race’s start and finish
- Personal fundraising webpage and fundraising coaching and guidance
- Regular encouragement and support before the race
- Team T-shirt from The Family Place
