WHY MAY 17 MATTERS

The date of the event is significant to The ChadTough Foundation for a number of reasons. May 17 is DIPG Awareness Day — a day intended to raise public awareness of the deadliest form of pediatric brain cancer. The annual Champions for Change Gala, which brings nearly 1,000 people together to raise money for pediatric brain cancer and is the largest fundraiser for the foundation each year, was originally scheduled for that same weekend but was canceled due to COVID-19. It also marks the 16th birthday of brain cancer warrior Sophie Varney, who has been battling DIPG for the last 17 months. Lastly, May 17 is also the one-year anniversary of 21-year-old Jace Ward’s diagnosis. He has bravely spent the last year fighting to raise awareness of the deadly disease.
