ChadTough Defeat DIPG Superhero Sprint & 6K

Mon May 1 - Wed May 31


Race Shirt & Pet Bandana


The 8th Annual ChadTough Defeat DIPG Superhero Sprint & 6K, presented by Headfirst Summer Camps, is a fun and meaningful way to contribute to the fight against childhood brain tumors. 
THIS YEAR'S EVENT IS ENTIRELY VIRTUAL to allow all of our supporters the flexibility to participate whether you are near or far! Our virtual participants may sign up to walk, run, or do the activity of your choice, on your own, anytime in May 2023. And, new for 2023, you can also sign up your pet to participate, and they will receive a Superhero 6K pet bandana!
Sign up by March 30th to get your race shirt by May 1 for brain tumor awareness month! Please see more details below on timing and deadlines. We will work to get everyone their race shirts by mail as quickly as possible in accordance with the timing below.
The Superhero 6K race was created in honor of Michael Mosier, a 6-year-old little boy from Bethesda, MD, who battled DIPG for 8.5 months before passing away in May 2015. This year is our 8th Annual Superhero 6K event, marking 8 years since Michael passed away. It has been an honor for this event to include many dozens of childhood cancer families over the years, and we can't wait to welcome back so many supporters who participate in honor of many special childhood cancer fighters.
Michael Mosier Defeat DIPG Foundation established the Superhero 6K in 2016. In January 2021, we announced the exciting news that we have joined forces with The ChadTough Foundation and now are united as one organization:  ChadTough Defeat DIPG Foundation. Our mission remains the same. All proceeds from the race will benefit ChadTough Defeat DIPG Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to raising funds for childhood brain cancer research, with an emphasis on DIPG.
Brain tumors are the leading cause of childhood cancer death for children and adolescents under the age of 19.  And, DIPG (diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma) is the most lethal form of pediatric brain cancer.  There is now hope for progress in the battle against DIPG, and your participation can make an impact and help save these kids' lives!
