Fever Cares supports a number of programs to encourage kids and adults to keep active and stay fit:
Breast Health Awareness —
As part of the Pacers Sports & Entertainment’s Heath Initiative and WNBA Breast Health Awareness Initiative, the Indiana Fever host a special Hoops For A Cure Night presented by St. Vincent at a select Fever game. During this special game, the Fever concentrate on bringing awareness to breast cancer by wearing pink jerseys and gear. In conjunction with this special promotion, the Fever conduct a health fair in Bankers Life Fieldhouse, where several organizations distribute educational materials about breast cancer. Pink ribbons and other giveaways are distributed, and breast cancer survivors are recognized during the pregame Ball Exchange and halftime parade.
The Indiana Fever also host the annual Hoops For A Cure Auction which has raised over $200,000 for breast cancer patients.

Get Fever Fit —
As part of the Pacers Sports & Entertainment’s Health Initiative and WNBA Fit program, the Get Fever Fit program holds Get Fever Fit clinics throughout the WNBA season. Fever coaches, players and/or Fever staff teach proper exercise techniques, show how being active can be fun with basketball drills, and teach about healthy living styles. The clinics last approximately one hour and vary in the number of children attending, depending on gym size.
The WNBA will embrace its responsibility as the preeminent women’s professional sports league with powerful role models to continue to deliver important messages and program related to the areas of health, fitness, nutrition and self-esteem. WNBA Fit will encourage teens and women of all ages to learn more about their bodies and the importance of physical fitness. Programming has been developed to encourage teens and women to get started on “being fit” through small changes in their daily regimen.
