Chapel Hill Breast Cancer Foundation

by Mary Ruth last modified Jul 17, 2013 05:17 PM
For over ten years, the Chapel Hill Breast Cancer Foundation has raised money for UNC Lineberger through tennis and golf tournaments.

Over ten years ago, two breast cancer survivors – Ann Peterson and Debbie Howard – decided to raise money for breast cancer research being done right here in North Carolina. They recruited a friend with financial background, Debbie Frazier, and formed the Chapel Hill Breast Cancer Foundation. They vowed that the Foundation would raise money with no administrative costs and donate all money raised each year to the three NCI-designated research facilities in North Carolina – UNC Lineberger, Duke, and Wake Forest. They organized a Pro-Am tennis tournament at the Chapel Hill Country Club, which has become more and more successful every year. In 2004, they decided to add a golf tournament at Treyburn Country Club in Durham.

This past year the Chapel Hill Breast Cancer Foundation hosted its 10th Annual tournament, donating $17,304 to UNC Lineberger to support innovative research at the UNC Breast Center – bringing the ten year total to over $100,000! This passionate group of volunteers is committed to continue these annual events until a cure for breast cancer is found. Thanks to their generous support, we get closer every year.
