The CHaD NH East-West High School All-Star Football Game, powered by the Bedford Ambulatory Surgical Center, made its debut on June 23, 2012, and has quickly proven itself a key fundraising event for CHaD (Children's Hospital at Dartmouth). Thanks to a dedicated group of corporate sponsors, players, spirit team members, community leaders and steadfast committee members, more than $1.2 million has been raised in the last 5 years to support CHaD programs.
The need for the Safe Sports Network program hit home for the founder, Nick Vailas, one August day more than 20 years ago. He was standing next to an athletic-looking young man outside a fence watching Manchester Central High School's football tryouts. He asked the young man why he wasn’t out there. The response to that question ("Because my family can't afford the physical.") planted the seed that has become the Safe Sports Network.
