CoppaFeel! exists to educate and remind every young person in the UK that checking their boobs could save their life. We are the first breast cancer charity in the UK to tailor a message to speak to and engage young people and instil healthy checking habits, early in life.
CoppaFeel! is a very special organisation and one that has proven to change behaviour, and ultimately save lives. The charity was set up in 2009 by it’s founder Kris Hallenga and since then has grown into a boob education machine. It is our mission to stamp out the late detection of breast cancer and we will do that by educating young people up and down the country through ambassador schemes such as The Boobettes, infiltrating uni campuses, setting up boob camp at festivals, hijacking national media spaces and growing a strong online platform. We provide a free and very simple message: Check your boobs now, as it may save your life one day.
