Channon was born and raised in Detroit and met her husband, Saddi Washington in college in 1995. In 2016, she and her family moved to Ann Arbor when Saddi was hired as an assistant coach of Men’s Basketball at the University of Michigan.
Channon is currently completing her doctorate in education at Vanderbilt University, teaching AP US History online while being a stay at home mom to Caleb and Sidney.
Channon and Saddi met Tammy when their son, Caleb joined the same basketball team that Tommy Carr played on. The Carrs were incredibly welcoming to the Washingtons when they moved to the Ann Arbor area and since then, Channon and Saddi have admired and supported ChadTough and the work the Carrs are doing to cure this disease.
Channon and Saddi understand what it means to fight for your kids and they gladly join this fight for the Carrs.
