Indiana Fever center Natalie Achonwa has earned the Seasonlong WNBA Community Assist Award presented by State Farm in recognition of her commitment and dedication to giving back to the community.
Throughout the 2019 preseason and regular season, Achonwa was an integral part of the Fever’s community outreach. During the Fever’s 20th season, Achonwa helped lead the charge on the team’s 20 Towns for 20 Seasons tour, which included appearances at a variety of community events and basketball tournaments.
Achonwa is dedicated to helping organizations that focus on mental health, anti-bullying and suicide prevention in addition to helping with education and literacy among youth, adopt-a-pet, and empowering women.
“A big part of my ‘why’ is focused around the next generation,” said Achonwa. “I want to be able to lead and inspire them to reach their dreams, and ultimately do better than me. I love being able to use my experience as a college graduate and professional athlete to give back to a community that gives so much to us.”
