The 7th Annual ChadTough Defeat DIPG Superhero Sprint & 6K
After two years of virtual-only events, we are thrilled to bring back our in-person race with a 6K timed walk/run, a 1K walk/run, and a Tot Sprint.
Yes, we will still have a virtual option for those near and far!
Our virtual participants may sign up to walk, run, or do the activity of your choice, on your own, anytime by May 31, 2022.
We will send our virtual participants their race shirts by mail!
The Superhero Sprint & 6K is fun and meaningful way to contribute to the fight against childhood brain tumors.
The race is a family-friendly event, and we welcome all children.
Children have three options: the 6K, the 1K Sprint, or the Tot Sprint.
The Superhero 6K race was created in honor of Michael Mosier, a 6-year-old little boy from Bethesda, Maryland, who battled DIPG for 8.5 months before passing away in May 2015. It has been an honor for this event to include many dozens of childhood cancer families over the years, and we can’t wait to welcome back so many of our supporters who participate in honor of many special childhood cancer fighters.
Michael Mosier Defeat DIPG Foundation originally established and has hosted the Superhero 6K for 5 years. Now that the foundation has joined forces with The ChadTough Foundation to form ChadTough Defeat DIPG Foundation, the mission remains the same. All proceeds from the race will benefit ChadTough Defeat DIPG Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to raising funds for childhood brain cancer research, with an emphasis on DIPG.
Brain tumors are the leading cause of childhood cancer death for children and adolescents under the age of 19, and DIPG (diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma) is the most lethal form of pediatric brain cancer. There is now hope for progress in the battle against DIPG, and your participation can make an impact and help save these kids’ lives!
