For nearly two decades, Roy Williams’ Fast Break Against Cancer has supported UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center and the N.C. Cancer Hospital. To date, this special event has raised more than $3 million for research and patient care here in Chapel Hill.

Coach Roy Williams and Jones Angell, the “Voice of the Tar Heels,” spurred on the bidding during the live auction at Fast Break.After the COVID-19 pandemic forced a hiatus, we were delighted to host the 16th Fast Break breakfast on the Roy Williams Court at the Dean Smith Center on Thursday, March 3. Even though our event is over, you can support Coach Williams and his efforts on behalf of UNC Lineberger by participating in our online auction. Visit to bid! This auction is now open and will close at 10 p.m. ET on Friday, March 11.

Our guest speaker for the 2022 event will be former Atlantic Coast Conference Commissioner and North Carolina football letterman John Swofford. A Morehead Scholar and 1971 graduate of UNC, Mr. Swofford served as Director of Athletics at UNC for 17 years and ACC Commissioner for 24 years before his retirement in 2021.

Fast Break will follow UNC Community Standards in place at the time of the event. Currently, masks must be worn over your nose and mouth at all times while indoors unless actively eating or drinking. While vaccinations are strongly encouraged, they are not currently required. If you prefer to watch the program from the comfort of your home, please select the virtual option at registration.
