CycleBar

Thank you to CycleBar Lake Norman for hosting us again. We had an amazing ride and enjoyed working together towards an earlier detection for breast cancer. 100% of proceeds went to Earlier.com!

Educational event with Carolina Breast Friends

We have been lucky enough to work with Carolina Breast Friends and have them come to campus to teach us how to do self-examinations to check for potentially cancerous lumps, to be proactive with our health, and to learn the warning signs for breast cancer. This year, we paired with Davidson’s Sigma Psi chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha for an educational event. We are so grateful for the invaluable knowledge that Carolina Breast Friends has shared with us.

2018 Bosom Buddies Gala

Our 2017 Bosom Buddies Gala was a an extremely memorable evening.  We raised just over $102,000 for Friends for an Earlier Breast Cancer Test!  We could not have done this without the support of our sponsors, family, and friends. We thank you for all of your efforts throughout the year- they are greatly appreciated!

The 2018 Bosom Buddies Gala is quickly approaching. This year, we hope to have another successful evening for a great cause!  Joan Robach will be giving the gala’s keynote address. Joan is the mother of Amy Robach from Good Morning America, a three year breast cancer survivor who’s story is truly inspiring.  The evening will also include both silent and live auctions following dinner.  The annual gala will be held on March 24th.  We hope to see you there, it is sure to be an unforgettable night!
