I just thought I'd post the fundraising site that Winovich started. The goal was changed to $250,000 recently.
Seems like a good thing to do today:
How did this start?
“I came up with the idea a couple months ago, actually,” said Winovich. “I was thinking, 'How could I help a charity? What unique talents do I have that could bring people together?' The one thing I really had that a lot of people don't have is the long hair. It's very noticeable, it's very divisive - people love it and there's some people that don't like it. It's a hot topic.”
Impacted by Chad Carr’s fight with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) in 2015, Winovich made the decision to partner with ChadTough to raise money for research.
“The legacy that the Carr family has with Michigan and their mission with ChadTough really resonated with me,” said Winovich. “It was just so heartfelt to see this young kid and the struggles he went through. It really pulled on my heartstrings. From day one, it inspired me to be a better football player and a better person.
“I always knew if there was any chance I had to give back and help out with that, I would do it."
