    The Bra-ha-ha is an annual campaign in  the fight against breast cancer where community members submit decorated bras to raise awareness and honor loved ones. It culminates with a bra decorating contest, an Awards Show & Auction and a 5K presented by the Chesapeake Regional Health Foundation. Funds raised through The Bra-ha-ha help provide mammograms and related breast health services to eligible, uninsured members of the Hampton Roads community while also helping to fund advanced breast health technology at Chesapeake Regional.

The Chesapeake Regional Health Foundation is fortunate to count among its supporters a tireless and dedicated group of volunteers. It is due in large part to their selfless donation of time and talents that we are able to host some of our signature events, such as the annual gala and Bra-ha-ha. Volunteers also serve an invaluable role in the Foundation office, where they assist with a range of administrative tasks.

For those considering careers in philanthropy, CRHF also accepts a small number of volunteer interns each year. Interns assist with a wide variety of duties, including special events, administrative duties and fundraising opportunities.
