ChadTough Defeat DIPG Signature Events

May 2023

Superhero Sprint & 6K

Participate virtually from anywhere!

The Superhero Sprint & 6K race was created in honor of Michael Mosier, who battled DIPG for 8.5 months before passing away in May 2015. This year, 2023, will be the 8th Annual event to honor Michael and all the superheroes that we have lost to DIPG, are currently fighting or will be diagnosed in the future. This race is hosted virtually every year in May, during Brain Tumor Awareness month. You can join wherever you are and participate in anyway you desire — walk, run, bike, or whatever you want! The best part, you can do it alone or get a group of enjoy raising funds for DIPG together!

RunTough

Participate in Saline, MI, or virtually from anywhere!

“RunTough for ChadTough” originated in 2014 to support the Carr family just weeks after Chad Carr was diagnosed with DIPG. RunTough is held every September in honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and to celebrate Chad’s birthday. To date, RunTough has raised over $2.5 million to support the foundation’s mission, inspired more than 10,000 registrants, and is still going strong!
