Join Team ChadTough for the 2017 Bank of America Chicago Marathon To Fund Research for Pediatric Brain Cancer
Want to help raise awareness and funds for pediatric brain cancer research? Join Team ChadTough!
Team ChadTough is forming its first ever marathon team for the 2017 Bank of America Chicago Marathon. Our goal is to find 20 passionate participants to help us spread Chad’s story and raise money for a cure.
We invite you to be a part of our inaugural 2017 team!
When you join Team ChadTough, you receive many great amenities such as a Guaranteed Entry into the Chicago Marathon with the entry fee paid for by Team ChadTough, team singlet, and an invitation for you and a guest to the ChadTough Team Celebration Dinner. Most importantly, you will be making your marathon experience even more meaningful by helping to fund research to fight pediatric brain cancer (responsible for the most number of pediatric cancer deaths) with an emphasis on the deadliest form, DIPG (diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma).
The ChadTough Foundation is a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to fund research and raise awareness for pediatric brain cancer with an emphasis on Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG). Participating in the Chicago Marathon with Team ChadTough is your opportunity to help change the survival rate for DIPG patients, which is currently 0%! Every child deserves a chance to live. No parent should ever have to face a terminal diagnosis for a child! To learn more about the important work your efforts will support, click Here.
