Tuesday, June 10th, I attended my fourth Kelly Cares Football 101 event. This was the fifth year for the women's only clinic which combines a hands-on Notre Dame football experience with a good cause. Proceeds from the event go toward breast cancer education and awareness, one of many causes the Kelly Cares Foundation supports, and one that is near and dear to the Kelly family as Paqui Kelly, wife of head coach Brian Kelly, is a two time breast cancer survivor.
