INDIANAPOLIS -

The Indiana Sports Corp. has announced Indiana Fever star Tamika Catchings and CBS Sports broadcaster Clark Kellogg as recipients of the 2016 Pathfinder Award. The annual award is given to those who have "demonstrated a commitment to improving the lives of America's youth."

Catchings and Kellogg will receive the award November 4 at the Indiana Roof Ballroom in downtown Indianapolis. 

"We are grateful to honor Tamika and Clark for their commitment to serving others and creating impact in the community," said Ryan Vaughn, president of Indiana Sports Corp. "Their dedication and work on behalf of numerous organizations, particularly those that benefit youth, make them the perfect choice to join our distinguished list of Pathfinder Award recipients."

Both recipients are heavily involved in youth charities.
