Support Breast cancer research in north carolina
The Chapel Hill Breast Cancer Foundation (CHBCF) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with the singular mission of supporting discovery phase research projects at Duke, UNC and Wake Forest Universities.
Despite tremendous success in both detection and treatment, breast cancer still claims the lives of more than 100 women every day in the US alone. New and novel approaches to prevention, detection and treatment are desperately needed if we ever hope to unravel the complex interactions of the many risk factors and truly cure breast cancer.
The CHBCF has raised more than $700,000 since its inception in 1997. The CHBCF differs from other charities in that 100% of the money raised goes directly to the research institutions. This is made possible by the generous donation of time and talent by CHBCF’s dedicated volunteers and supporters.
THE 2016 “TEE IT UP FOR A CURE” RAISED A RECORD $54,000
Thanks to all of our sponsors, donors, participants and volunteers our 2016 Fundraiser, Tee it Up for a Cure, raised a record $54,000 for the Chapel Hill Breast Cancer Foundation.
These funds are distributed equally to the breast cancer research programs at Duke, UNC and Wake Forest Universities.

“We now have the potential to develop therapies that are both more effective and less toxic. Activities like “Tee it up for a Cure” are invaluable partners in our war on cancer.”
