Brown and F.E.V.E.R. Tour Roll On

February 8, 2005
The Indiana Fever's annual "For Every Victory Earns Respect" Tour (F.E.V.E.R.) continued this week with Tuesday's appearance by Coretta Brown at IPS #315 (Cold Springs Elementary School).

Each year, Fever players pay visits to elementary schools in the Indianpolis area, with roughly a dozen visits scheduled between January and March. On these visits they share personal stories of obstacles and triumphs that helped them reach the WNBA and other personal accomplishments. The focus of the talks is on setting goals and how achieving those goals can help one gradually attain success. The players also share how a positive attitude, education and strong work ethic can help children reach their dreams.

Upcoming stops already scheduled on this year's F.E.V.E.R. Tour:

  • Thursday, February 17 - IPS #48 (Louis B. Russell Elementary)
  • Friday, February 18 - IPS #39 (William McKinley Elementary)
  • Friday, February 25 - IPS #14 (Washington Irving Elementary School)

    Being accomplished women in academics, athletics and other facets of life have made the women of the Indiana Fever outstanding role models and the ideal voice for these messages.
