Chase Winovich

University of Michigan DE Chase Winovich announced December 20 that he would dye his hair orange for the Outback Bowl if his fundraiser for The ChadTough Foundation reached $15,000. That total was raised in 13 hours and the initiative went viral. OL Grant Newsome, DL Mo Hurst, LB Devin Bush, DB Josh Metellus, Larry Prout, Jr., and Defensive Coordinator Don Brown all joined the cause.

All funds raised will go toward the Pediatric Brain Tumor Research Initiative at Michigan Medicine, making it eligible for a match by University of Michigan Regent Ron Weiser.

The following news clips have resulted from the fundraiser, which (as of Dec. 27, 11:45 a.m. ET) has raised more than $140,000.
