celebrating 20 years of supporting Breast cancer research
in north carolina
Since its inception in 1997, The Chapel Hill Breast Cancer Foundation has donated more than $700,000 in support of breast cancer research at Duke, UNC and Wake Forest Universities.
The Chapel Hill Breast Cancer Foundation (CHBCF) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with the singular mission of supporting discovery-phase breast cancer research projects at our local 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 differs from other charities in that 100% of the money raised goes directly to the research institutions. This is made possible through the generosity of our dedicated volunteers, sponsors, supporters and event participants.
THE 2016 “TEE IT UP FOR A CURE” RAISED A RECORD $54,000
These funds were distributed equally to the breast cancer research programs at Duke University, University of North Carolina and Wake Forest University.
