Donation made to ChadTough Foundation

Together you all made this possible

Recently the folks at Kenney Outdoor Solutions and Spring Valley presented the first check to the ChadTough Foundation generated from your purchases of TOUGHEST ICE MELTER.  It is through your combined efforts that the donation of $5,310 was given to this tremendous organization.  Our goal this year is to increase the awareness of the huge need that is out there and are excited to offer again this great product for the 2018-19 winter season.

ChadTough Foundation

The mission of The ChadTough Foundation is to fund research and raise awareness for Pediatric Brain Tumors with an emphasis on Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG).

The most hated word in the world of pediatric brain tumors is “rare”. “Rare” is the reason there is not enough research being done. “Rare” is the reason there aren’t drugs being developed. “Rare” is the reason there is so little funding. “Rare” is why our kids don’t have more options. The three facts below negate the claim of “rare”:

  • Cancer is the number one disease killer of children in America
  • Brain tumors are the leading cause of cancer-related death in children
  • DIPG is the leading cause of death from brain tumors in children

Chad Carr


Lloyd Carr with his grandson Chad

was a precious, beautiful, fun-loving boy who — on September 23rd, 2014 — was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor called Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG). Three days later, he spent his 4th birthday in the Coach Carr Unit of Mott Children’s Hospital in Ann Arbor, Michigan (The Coach Carr Unit is named after Chad’s grandfather, former University of Michigan football coach Lloyd Carr).

Chad would undergo 30 rounds of radiation at Mott, and then participate in a clinical trial at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. He bravely fought for 14 months before gaining his angel wings on November 23, 2015.

Toughest Ice Melter

MELTS MORE – Compared to leading brands, TOUGHEST Ice Melter is over three times more effective at temperatures below 10° F

MELTS FASTER – TOUGHEST Ice Melter is coated with powerful de-icing agents for superior ice melting performance

MELTS AT LOW TEMPERATURES – TOUGHEST Ice Melter is a four-way blend of proven performers, including Calcium and Magnesium Chloride, that melts to minus 15°

SAFER THAN ROCK SALT –  Straight Rock Salt is deadly to grass and shrubs. TOUGHEST Ice Melter works great on ice and snow and won’t harm vegetation if used as directed

NO MESSY CARPETS – Many ice melters that get tracked indoors can create a “greasy” wet film on hard surfaces or damage indoor flooring. TOUGHEST Ice Melter leaves no “greasy” residue and is easily cleaned from flooring

FREE FLOWING – Some de-icers can turn rock hard inside the container resulting in wasted material. TOUGHEST Ice Melter is formulated with organic anti-caking agents for prolonged storage with minimum clumping
