Romulus high schoolers raising funds for #ChadTough movement

Local high school students came together over the weekend in support of 4-year-old Chad Carr, who has been diagnosed with an inoperable brain cancer. 

Chad is the grandson of former University of Michigan coach Lloyd Carr. 

Students at Romulus High School held a bowling event to raise funds for cancer research. They have also been selling bracelets with the boy's motto on them, #ChadTough. Chad's aunt is a teacher at the school. 

Students say he's a part of their family, and they want to pitch in to help find a cure. 

"His tumor has shrunk 90 percent since we first learned about this, so I mean, it's only encouraged us to continue," says student Rashaan Pope. "We need to pray for a miracle and, so far, we've got about 90 percent of a miracle." 

Chad couldn't come to the fundraiser, but his family came out to thank the students. This week, Chad is headed to New York for experimental surgery.
