Annual Races

The 8th Annual RunTough for ChadTough Defeat DIPG 5K & 1M Fun Run presented by Blue Cross Blue Shield Of Michigan was a resounding success! Because of YOU, we raised over $390,000. This year we had more than 900 registrations for the local Saline race (special thanks to those who braved the rain!) and almost 1,800 participate virtually (thank you Bose for sponsoring the virtual option) from around the world! Over the past 8 years, more than 16,000 people have taken part in this event, helping us raise awareness and dollars for important pediatric brain cancer research. THANK YOU!

ChadTough Defeat DIPG Foundations Superhero Sprint & 6K, presented by Headfirst Summer Camps, is always a family favorite! You can run from anywhere or join the Mosiers in Bethesda, Maryland for the in-person race. Whatever you choose, you will be helping to #DefeatDIPG.
