Join the Credit Unions Kids at Heart 2021 All-Ability Challenge, a virtual event and celebration of health and kindness to raise funds for Boston Children's Hospital. Participants will help raise awareness of and money for research aimed at the prevention, treatment, and cure of pediatric neurological disorders conducted by Dr. Scellig Stone and Dr. Edward Smith of Boston Children's Hospital. No funds are held by Credit Unions Kids at Heart to cover administrative costs or overhead.

Physical Challenges


Inspired by the determination of the patients of Boston Children’s Hospital and driven by our organization’s mission to help children lead happy and healthy lives, this year the Credit Unions Kids at Heart community may select one or more physical challenges to complete during the All-Ability Challenge.

Adults may walk, run, or roll/race (wheelchair entrants) either 5 kilometers (approx. 3.1 miles) or 10 kilometers (approx. 6.2 miles) or may cycle (indoor or outdoor) 20 kilometers (approx. 12.4 miles).

Families with children under the age of 18 may do any of the challenges listed above and/or may walk, run, or roll/race 1 mile or cycle 5 kilometers.

Acts of Kindness Challenge


Credit Unions Kids at Heart believes that together we can make the world a better place. The All-Ability Challenge participants are encouraged to complete acts of kindness in their community during the Challenge dates listed above in addition to or instead of the physical challenges.

Participants may complete one good deed per Challenge Day or may pursue a more formal service project. We will provide a list of ideas, most of which require no financial commitment.

We remind you to contact local agencies regarding any current guidelines or restrictions that may limit your ability to volunteer or to donate goods at this time.
