Briann January of the Indiana Fever has been awarded the August WNBA Cares Community Assist Award presented by State Farm for her community and youth outreach efforts throughout Indiana.
January remains committed to the Indiana community, participating in various PRIDE events, Get Fever FIT clinics and youth literacy initiatives. In celebration and support of inclusion and equality, January walked in the Indiana Pride Parade alongside fellow teammates, and visited the Indiana Youth Group. During Indy Pride Week, January played in a charity softball game, raising money in support of local LGBT initiatives.
Every month, the WNBA chooses one player from across the league to receive the WNBA Cares Community Assist Award presented by State Farm. The award honors the WNBA player who best reflects the passion that the league and its players have for giving back to their communities.
