The College of Science is proud of our role in facilitating and participating in partnerships with leading academic, medical, educational, social, and athletic activities on the Notre Dame campus and across the community aimed at improving conditions for people at home and around the world. We partner with the women's basketball team and other community and clinic efforts in the common cause of women's health.
"Our collaboration with the Notre Dame women's basketball team through the Pink Zone initiative is to assist women in our community who cannot afford breast cancer screenings and mammograms. It is a natural outgrowth of our commitment in the College of Science to research aimed at overcoming this disease.” - Dean Greg Crawford
Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2013 Pink Zone events.

Play dodgeball, fight cancer!
All members of the Notre Dame and South Bend communities are welcome to form a 6-8 person team and participate in the dodgeball tournament. Only six people can play at one time, but extra players will act as substitutes.
Teams are asked to raise a minimum of $30 in order to enter the tournament, although we encourage you to raise as much money as you can. Money will be collected during team check-in on the day of the tournament. The team that raises the most money will receive a prize. There will also be a costume contest to see which team can wear the most pink and a prize will be awarded.
The winning team of the final round will be honored during the Notre Dame Women’s Basketball game on Saturday, February 2.
All teams must register by 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, January 29. For more information about this event, please review the tournament overview document. If you have any questions or concerns about the dodgeball tournament, contact Ashley Barraza.
