F.E.V.E.R. Tour Begins

January 20,2005
The Indiana Fever's annual "For Every Victory Earns Respect" Tour (F.E.V.E.R.) began this week with Thursday's appearance at IPS #102 (Francis Bellamy 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.

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. If you would be interested in having your local school become a part of a future F.E.V.E.R. Tour, contact Dan Gaines, community relations manager, at (317) 917-2757.
