BENEFITING: The Chadtough Foundation
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I am honored to be running the New York City Marathon on November 6, 2016 to raise research dollars and awareness for the ChadTough Foundation. The ChadTough Foundation was started by Jason and Tammi Carr in honor of their son Chad and his battle with DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma). My family and I have felt a connection with Chad and his family from the beginning of his diagnosis. Chad’s older brother CJ and our son Marcelo were in the same class in school when we first heard about Chad’s diagnosis and from that day forward, we were praying and hoping for a cure. Chad has gone to his forever home, but our battle continues and my goal is to run with the spirit of Chad and all of the other children and their families who continue to battle pediatric brain tumors. With your support, we believe that successful treatments and a cure are possible. After all, "The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step." Please help me take the first step in finding a cure for DIPG!
