West Coast Fever youngsters Ingrid Colyer and Annika Lee-Jones had a memorable day last Thursday, spending time at the Telethon Kids Institute Discover Day.
Promoting the importance of how friends and family can be supportive role models for younger generations, Colyer and Lee-Jones signed autographs and engaged with Fever fans throughout the morning.
Colyer cemented her position in Fever’s starting seven this season, playing all 14 games and registering 282 feeds and 225 centre pass receives, while Lee-Jones made her National League debut in Round 6 against eventual premiers the Sunshine Coast Lightning.
Colyer said being a good role model was something she prided herself on.
“We’re in an incredibly priviledged position as athletes, and it’s exciting to think that we are role models for the next generation,” Colyer said.
“Knowing that my actions have an impact on how people think is humbling, and I truly hope I have made a difference in the way people view their alcohol consumption."
Healthway’s Acting Executive Director, Maree De Lacey, congratulated Colyer for continuing to be a positive influence within the netball community.
“Ingrid is a great role model for demonstrating how a healthy lifestyle can help us to achieve our goals in life,” Ms De Lacey said.
West Coast Fever’s 2018 Memberships will be launched in the coming weeks.
