About This Activity

Are you ChadTough?

The 3rd Annual RunTough for ChadTough is presented by the Ted and Jane Von Voigtlander Foundation and includes a 5K as well as a 1 mile Fun Run (virtual or in person race).  All proceeds from the run will go to the ChadTough Foundation, whose mission is to fund research and raise awareness for Pediatric Brain Tumors with an emphasis on Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG.)  Join the Carr family as they celebrate Chad’s Birthday and rally to cure pediatric brain tumors!
