Carr family holds "Run Tough for Chad Tough" event


ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Runners gave everything they had on a cold Saturday because Tammi Carr and Jason Carr are giving everything they've got for their little boy, Chad.

It's been a year since the family learned Chad has diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma, a brain tumor, cancer that strikes children. There is no cure.

On Saturday "Run Tough for Chad Tough" was held and $100,000 was raised for DIPG research.

Chad's grandfather is former Michigan football coach Lloyd Carr. The entire family has been open about not knowing how long Chad will make it through treatments and surgeries.

Chad celebrated his fifth birthday last week.

Messages can be found on Twitter at #ChadTough. Chad's family says keep those messages coming.
