Last year we set a goal to turn the $10,000 fine Jim Harbaugh received from the Big Ten following the Ohio State game into a positive with a matching $10,000 donation to The ChadTough Foundation. Thanks to the generosity of Michigan fans across the country we blew away that goal and raised $28,000 for ChadTough in less than a week!
We're continuing this now annual week-after-The-Game tradition with a goal of raising another $10k for ChadTough.
Last week, the Carr family marked the two year anniversary of Chad Carr's passing as a result of Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG). It's a position no parent ever wants to be in and the goal of The ChadTough Foundation is to fund research and raise awareness of DIPG in hopes of someday finding a cure, or at the very least, treatment. It's already working as Michigan Medicine has gained brain tumor insight from studying Chad's tissue.
Let's once again pull together as one big Michigan family and continue to help fight this awful disease. Go Blue!
