WNBA’s Catchings Gets Community Assist Award

Via the NBA: The WNBA today honored Indiana Fever forward Tamika Catchings’ commitment to the community with its WNBA Cares Community Assist Award for July.  The Fever captain plays a leadership role off-the-court in the team’s community outreach programs as the spokesperson for Get Fever Fit, the team’s WNBA FIT initiative, and supports youth development, education, and health and wellness year-round through her Catch the Stars Foundation.  This marks Catchings’ seventh Community Assist Award, having previously received awards in 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2006.  Catchings was also named the 2007 Dawn Staley Community Leadership Award recipient. Great job, Tamika!
