Meet Michael

The Superhero 6K race was created in honor of Michael Mosier, a 6-year-old little boy from Bethesda, Maryland, who battled DIPG for 8.5 months before passing away in May 2015. It has been an honor for this event to include many dozens of childhood cancer families over the years, and we can’t wait to welcome back so many of our supporters who participate in honor of many special childhood cancer fighters.

Michael Mosier Defeat DIPG Foundation originally established and has hosted the Superhero 6K for 5 years. Now that the foundation has joined forces with The ChadTough Foundation to form ChadTough Defeat DIPG Foundation, the mission remains the same. All proceeds from the race will benefit ChadTough Defeat DIPG Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to raising funds for childhood brain cancer research, with an emphasis on DIPG.

Brain tumors are the leading cause of childhood cancer death for children and adolescents under the age of 19, and DIPG (diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma) is the most lethal form of pediatric brain cancer. There is now hope for progress in the battle against DIPG, and your participation can make an impact and help save these kids’ lives!

Honoring our Childhood Brain Cancer Superheroes

NEW FOR 2024: The Superhero 6K is so special because of the many families who participate in honor of their kids. It’s the children who are our heroes! For the first time, we will be listing the names of kids who have inspired the Superhero 6K race teams on the back of the race shirt as our 2024 Childhood Brain Cancer Superheroes.

How do you make this happen? The team needs to meet one or both of the participation goals listed below by MARCH 1, 2024:

  • Create a race team in honor of a child who has fought (or is currently fighting) childhood brain cancer and get a minimum of 10 people to register on your team.
  • Create a fundraiser and raise a minimum of $500.

We encourage you to set up your team and spread the word right away! To meet our printing deadline, teams must complete one of the participation goals by March 1, 2024, to have their child’s name added to this year’s shirt. Once you reach your goal, the team captain(s) will be contacted to confirm the child’s name.
