INDIANAPOLIS – Community Health Network and the Indiana Fever are partnering to help Hoosiers jump start their fitness programs with a free fitness clinic at Conseco Fieldhouse on Sunday, August 21, 2005, from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. The event is part of the My Community Gets Healthy initiative, launched by Community in June of 2004.

“The fitness clinic at Conseco Fieldhouse is a great way for families to commit to healthy lifestyles,” said Bill Corley, president and CEO of Community Health Network. “The event will give people a chance to measure their health through free screenings, learn how to maintain overall health and meet the Indiana Fever players.”

“We are obviously happy to host this fitness event at Conseco Fieldhouse,” said the Fever’s Chief Operating Officer and General Manager Kelly Krauskopf. “Our players lead a fit and active lifestyle, and our partnership with Community provides a wonderful opportunity to showcase our facility while providing a valuable service.”

Select members of the Fever will participate in the event. Among those committed to assist in the clinic are All-Star and 2004 U.S. Olympian Tamika Catchings, point guard Tully Bevilaqua and center Kelly Schumacher.
