"YPSILANTI, Mich. — Tammi Carr vividly remembers when Michigan defensive end Chase Winovich contacted her last year. He ran up to her car in the parking lot of the Wolverines’ football offices and told her he wanted to designate the ChadTough Foundation as the main beneficiary of a charitable project he was planning.
Carr was immediately ready to accept Winovich’s offer, but she told him to run it by the football office and the athletic department. Once Winovich received the all-clear from Michigan’s compliance department, he launched a social media campaign in December that raised more than $211,000 to benefit ChadTough. As a result, he and several teammates dyed their hair orange for the Outback Bowl in January.
Winovich continued his philanthropic endeavors last week when he participated in Dancing With the Michigan Stars. The event raised more than $143,000 for research and awareness of Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma, an inoperable tumor in the brain stem.
The ChadTough Foundation raises money for DIPG research and for outreach to families of children who have been diagnosed with DIPG. Winovich’s engagement with the ChadTough Foundation continues to floor Carr, the daughter-in-law of former Michigan football coach Lloyd Carr and the mother of Chad Carr, the namesake of the ChadTough Foundation. Chad Carr died in November of 2015 after a 14-month fight with DIPG. He was 5."
