The ChadTough Foundation is honored to be the benefactor of the 2019 Dancing with the Michigan Stars event, which will be held at the Kensington Hotel on March 7th, 2019.

The event will be a fun-filled dance competition with some of Michigan’s favorite “celebrities” dancing alongside their professional dance partners.

The ChadTough Foundation was formed because no family deserves to hear, “there is no hope.”

Jason and Tammi Carr established The ChadTough Foundation as a lasting legacy for their beloved son, Chad.  Chad was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG), an inoperable brain tumor, in 2014.  He was given a prognosis of 9 months with no viable treatment plan.

With his parents and older brothers, CJ & Tommy, by his side, Chad courageously battled the disease for 14 months.  On November 23, 2105, Chad gained his angel wings.  He left behind a devastated family and motivated community willing to do anything to ensure future families facing DIPG have real hope in treatment.

Please help The ChadTough Foundation fund life-saving research by donating to your favorite dancer.  The “People’s Choice Award” is awarded to the dancer that raises the highest fundraising amount.

The ChadTough Foundation would like to thank these wonderful dancers for agreeing to take the spotlight and show off their dancing skills, along with Arthur Murray Ann Arbor Studio for providing the lessons and professional dancers and The Kensington Hotel for being such gracious hosts.
