At 9:00 a.m. in Lebanon, N.H., the Lost a Lot Trail Race—which was created and organized by Chad—will proceed as planned. The seven-mile course is not easy, but it is fun. As anyone who knew Chad can tell you, he loved competition, but his primary goal was always to get as many people as possible outside just having a good time. In that tradition, all ages, abilities, and paces are encouraged to participate.
Around noon, following the race and awards, there will be a picnic at the Oak Hill recreation area in Hanover, N.H., about five miles from the finish of the race. We will have directions available at the race for anyone who needs them. We will also post additional details and directions on Team Amp's Facebook page.
Please bring a picnic lunch for yourself and a dessert to share potluck style. Don't worry if you can't bake: peanut M&Ms (or "power pellets," as Chad always called them) are perfectly acceptable. As we picnic, we will share memories of Chad and celebrate his remarkable life. All are welcome to attend the picnic regardless of whether they participate in the race.
We encourage you to share your favorite photos of Chad on the Team AMP Facebook page or to email them to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, September 19. We will print as many as possible and display them at the picnic. We also encourage you to write and print recollections of Chad. We will have an area available at the picnic to display those recollections.
Finally, a fund has been set up to collect donations to Chad's family. Donations will be accepted at both the race and the picnic, or you can mail donations to:
The Chad Denning Family Fund
67 Main Street
West Lebanon, NH 03784
Checks should be made payable to Becky Denning.
Chad Denning was truly an inspiration. We will never forget his kindness, his spirit, and his smile. We hope you will join us to celebrate his life. It was far too short, but it was so full of adventures of every kind.
Hope to see you all there!

New London — It shouldn’t happen to Superman.
That was one somber-faced reaction to the news that spread throughout the area’s running and recreational communities on Monday: Chad Denning, a beloved and seemingly invulnerable endurance athlete from New London, collapsed and died while hiking on the Appalachian Trail on Mt. Moosilauke in Benton, N.H., on Sunday afternoon.
P.J. Lovely, the director of the Newport Recreation Department, said that when he heard the Superman reference from an area race director, it seemed apt because, to many local athletes, the 39-year-old Denning seemed like a bona fide superhero. READ MORE
We will keep you posted about how the Upper Valley plans to honor this amazing athlete and friend.

Brownsville Rescue Squad -Rough Terrain Vehicle FundThe local Fire / Rescue Squad is trying to raise money to offset the purchase a new Rough Terrain Vehicle. They have been a staunch supporter of the VT 100 and the VT 50 (in September) and are always there and on call to trek out into the woods to aid one of our participants, should the need arise.
Every penny made goes directly to Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports to support their programs and the equipment needed to teach lessons.
