It was a night filled with dancing, fun, emotion, and hope for Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) and pediatric brain tumor research. Dancing with the Michigan Stars presented by Arthur Murray Dance Studio raised $143,000 for The ChadTough Foundation.
Funds given were raised through Chase Winovich‘s efforts in December. Winovich, Grant Newsome, Mo Hurst Jr., Josh Metellus, Devin Bush II, Defensive Coordinator Don Brown, and friend of the program Larry Prout Jr., all dyed their hair to support ChadTough.
More than 30 individuals ran on the ChadTough Marathon team, specifically honoring Chad Carr, Tommy Ruddy, and Emma Buron – three children from Michigan who passed away after battling Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG).
The ChadTough Foundation and the Michael Mosier Defeat DIPG Foundation have formed a partnership that will fund research grants focused on Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG).
