"Team Chad was created on Halloween, when he and two of his friends, Abbie and McKenzie, were having a hard time deciding what they wanted to dress up as. It was mentioned ‘We should just go as Team Chad’. McKenzie’s dad, Shane Pennington, took three plain white t-shirts and a green magic marker and made simple ‘Team Chad’ t-shirts. It advanced from there with professional created t-shirts and a Facebook page that is going viral; Team chad is here to fight with him and carry him through the tough times!"
