Join Gabrielle in the fight to Defeat DIPG, with a 5K virtually within 2 weeks of her Bat Mitzvah!
In light of the pandemic, we have decided to make our walk virtual, meaning you can do it wherever you like. Please post pictures of walking, running or skipping your way through your own neighborhood or course, and post on facebook with the hashtag #defeatdipg
ChadTough Defeat DIPG Foundation (formerly known as The Michael Mosier Defeat DIPG Foundation) is committed to finding a cure for brainstem tumors known as diffuse intrinsic pontine gliomas (DIPG).
Nearly every day one child in the United States is diagnosed with DIPG and another child dies from it. A child diagnosed with DIPG today faces the same prognosis as a child diagnosed 40 years ago. There is still no effective treatment and no chance of survival. More than 90 percent of children diagnosed with DIPG will die within 2 years of diagnosis, and most children will live only 9 months. The Foundation seeks to make a difference and Defeat DIPG both by raising awareness of DIPG and by providing funding for research into effective treatments for DIPG.

Please join Gabrielle with a donation of any amount you feel comfortable with.
