Why We Give


“I learned about DIPG right after my oldest son was born. As a mom, I couldn’t even imagine the pain that the Carr family was going through after Chad’s diagnosis. Chad’s story changed my life in many ways, and I knew that God was telling me that I had to help. I had to do something – whether that was volunteer, raise awareness, or simply give what I could to the cause. Life can be hectic with three little ones, so giving monthly is our small way of being able to stay involved and keep supporting such an incredible and deserving cause. The DIPG statistics, the suffering, the children – they all deserve better and anyone can help make a difference.”

– Sarah, Plymouth, MI


“I chose to become a member of the monthly giving program because it gives me the opportunity to support the foundation with ease on a regular basis and, at the same time, still be supportive of the various fundraising efforts during the course of the year which are always very uplifting and enjoyable. The ChadTough Defeat DIPG Foundation is doing amazing things with the funds raised to date. Keep up the great work!”

– Sandy, Ann Arbor, MI


“I’ve always enjoyed participating in various ChadTough fundraisers that provide funding via each event. When the ChadTough Defeat DIPG Foundation created the opportunity to donate on a monthly basis, I thought it was a wonderful opportunity to allow a steady stream of funding that could be counted on between events. I highly recommend everyone consider making a recurring donation that meets your giving budget. It was easy to start and gives one a tremendous amount of personal gratification knowing you can be counted on regularly to support ChadTough.”
