At Notre Dame, the students are taught to be women of change and the importance of giving back to the community. As such, the basketball program—each year—chooses an organization to help. The girls are excited to help a cause that seems to impact more women than it does men.

Now celebrating 20 years of service, the Brain Aneurysm Foundation was established in 1994 in Boston, Massachusetts with a mission to promote early detection of brain aneurysms by providing knowledge and raising awareness of the signs, symptoms and risk factors; work with the medical communities to provide support networks for patients and families; as well as to further research that will improve patient outcomes and save lives.
