When Michigan defensive lineman Chase Winovich challenged fans to raise money for the ChadTough Foundation a few days ago, his goal was to hit $15,000. But with an overwhelming amount of support, donations are nearly 10 times that high.

On Christmas Day, Winovich tweeted that over $125,000 had been raised for the ChadTough Foundation following his challenge.

“I started this challenge with the hope of raising $15,000 in about 10 days,” Winovich wrote. “As a community of people taking a stand against DIPG and childhood cancer, we have went above and beyond that. Thank you to everyone that has made this Christmas the most special!”

When Winovich initiated the challenge, he pledged to dye his hair orange for Michigan’s Outback Bowl game against South Carolina if donations hit $15,000. Several other Wolverines jumped in as well, as Maurice Hurst, Devin Bush and Grant Newsome all said they’d sport orange hair if different goals were met.

Defensive coordinator Don Brown also got in on the fun, pledging to dye his mustache orange if donations exceeded $125,000.

The ChadTough Foundation raises funds for pediatric cancer research and awareness for diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG). Chad Carr, the grandson of former Michigan head coach Lloyd Carr, lost his battle with DIPG in 2015.

Since that time, the ChadTough Foundation has been a foundation that several Wolverines sports teams have supported.
