Be a part of the cure. Join Team ChadTough to raise awareness and funds to fight pediatric brain cancer!
Team ChadTough is a group of individuals raising funds and awareness for pediatric brain cancer with an emphasis on Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) through racing events at a variety of skill levels. Whether it’s a 5k or a marathon, the important thing is racing on behalf of The ChadTough Foundation and having a powerful, once-in-a-lifetime experience.
The ChadTough Foundation is a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) organization with the mission to fund research and raise awareness for pediatric brain cancer with an emphasis on Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG). Participating in Team ChadTough is your opportunity to help change the survival rate for DIPG patients, which is currently 0%! Every child deserves a chance to survive cancer. No parent should ever have to face a terminal diagnosis for a child! Learn more about the foundation.

Fundraising Commitment: $700
To recognize the more than 700 children around the world that are diagnosed with childhood cancer every day, we ask each of the Team ChadTough members participating in the “Any Race, Any Time” program to commit to raising $700 to support pediatric brain cancer research (with an emphasis on one of the deadliest forms, Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma).
- Raise $400. Once we have received at least $400 through your Crowdrise account or directly to the foundation, we will send your exclusive Team ChadTough singlet so you can train in it before wearing it on race day.
- Raise $700 by 2 weeks prior to race day. Once we have received at least $700 through your Crowdrise account or directly to the foundation we will send your water bottle and bumper sticker, along with a note of appreciation from the foundation.
- Upon receiving a picture/video from your event, we will feature your success through our social media channels.

Once you meet your fundraising commitment, you will get rewarded with exclusive ChadTough gear for additional fundraising. We are in the process of refreshing our gear for 2019. More info to come soon! For questions, please contact Amy Lepore, Director of Fundraising.
