Swin Cash of the New York Liberty has been awarded the September WNBA Community Assist Award presented by State Farm for her efforts to inspire and mentor youth across the country with a focus on overall health, fitness and education.
Last month, Cash took 30 children on a sightseeing adventure throughout New York City, which included a tour of Central Park, a boat ride on the Hudson River and visits to several museums including the American Museum of Natural History and Intrepid Air & Space Museum. The trip concluded with a VIP experience at a game between the Liberty and Connecticut Sun, followed by a Cash for Kids vs. Cash for Kids game on the famous Madison Square Garden court.
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.
