What Can One Person Do? Change the World!
Join us for an incredible evening of fun, inspiration, and remembrance as we tell the stories of children lost too soon and feature the progress being made to find a cure for the deadliest form of pediatric brain cancer, Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG).
Co-chaired by Michigan men’s basketball head coach John Beilein and his wife, Kathleen, this year’s event will showcase the impact The ChadTough Foundation has made so far in the fight against DIPG. You will hear from the 2019 Spirit Award Winner, Dick Vitale, on why this fight is so important! And you’ll be able to finish your evening dancing the night away to incredible music by Chateau Band!
The evening will benefit The ChadTough Foundation with half of net proceeds donated to Michigan Medicine’s Chad Carr Pediatric Brain Tumor Center.
Why We’re Raising Money
For a parent of a child with DIPG, it’s hard to describe the bewilderment and anger felt when told the standard of care for the disease has not changed in over 40 years.
Thankfully, that is starting to change.
With the help of incredible doctors and researchers around the world — many coming together at Michigan Medicine — more information is being gathered about this lethal tumor taking the lives of our precious children. Doctors now believe a cure will be found in our lifetime. Funding from foundations like ChadTough is critical in the journey to find this cure.
