NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- Notre Dame hosted Indiana's first Pink Lemonade Stand to benefit breast cancer research on Wednesday at the Duncan Student Center.

Pink lemonade stands are part of a national campaign to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research.

This event was held in honor of Hall of Fame football player Jerome Bettis, who is also a Notre Dame student.

“The Pink Lemonade Stand Challenge is to not only do 50 stands in 50 states but to raise $1 million for breast cancer research and we’re currently a little over $100,000,” Kayleigh Doyle said.

Bettis joined the volunteers at the stand on Wednesday.

“It takes money but before it takes money it takes commitment. And that's what these young ladies are showing, that they’re committed to making a change,” Bettis said.

Bettis is a longtime supporter of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, the beneficiary of this campaign. He's also a current member of the organization's board of directors.
