How CBF was started

Throughout Chris Bunn’s life and especially during his fight with a type of cancer known as Leiomyosarcoma, people were drawn to him for his profound faith, his outlook on life, and his tremendous attitude. Even while concern for Chris was growing, he was more concerned for others and how he could help them.

At the memorial service celebrating Chris’ life, the church was so packed that standing room only was available. Chris’s family knew how he touched their lives, but underestimated how many other people he touched in just 41 years.

Soon after the service, a group of friends and family got together to find a way to convert this outpouring of love and support into something positive to honor Chris’s life and passions. The CB Foundation had its spark when his wife Dabney shared that while everyone affectionately called Chris “CB,” short for Chris Bunn, she always felt that “CB” stood for the continuous blessing he was to all of those around him.

So, as a group we crafted our mission statement:

The Continuous Blessings Foundation, inspired by the remarkable life and caring spirit of Chris Bunn, exists to meet the needs and create opportunities in the lives of youth in the greater Raleigh, NC area.

Today, the Continuous Blessings Foundation is a vehicle to help others in the spirit Chris Bunn demonstrated – by combining his faith, his passion for helping children, and his athletic skills to make a better life for others. We are launching our fundraising efforts in true Chris Bunn fashion – by having a great time on the golf course.
