The National Corvette Museum presented a check for $27,123 – proceeds from last year’s “One Lap of Kentucky” road tour – to the Kentucky State Police for its Trooper Island Camp.
The donation, presented to the KSP at the museum Tuesday, brings the total to more than $92,000 donated by the NCM for Trooper Island Camp since 2010.
Trooper Island Camp is a free, week-long experience designed to help underprivileged children ages 10-12 develop their self-image, build healthy eating and exercise habits, provide spiritual growth, and further mental capabilities.
Registration is open for this year’s One Lap of Kentucky set for October. You can find out more by visiting here.
Events Manager Karen Renfrow of the NCM explained One Lap of Kentucky’s purpose: “Corvette enthusiasts love road tours, so we thought why not expand what is typically a one-day excursion into a multi-day event open to not only Corvette enthusiasts, but the entire community.”
“The bonus,” she says, “was that a State Trooper led the tour, instead of seeing one in our rearview mirror!”
This year’s One Lap of Kentucky will be the ninth annual event, part of the Museum in Motion program, and represents a unique partnership between the National Corvette Museum and the Kentucky State Police.
Each year, the Tour explores a different section of Kentucky. Trooper Jonathan Biven, Trooper Island Camp director, will be using a newly painted marked silver Corvette to lead the participants as they tour places like Makers Mark Distillery, Ark Encounter, Taylormade Farms, Keeneland Horse Racing, Louisville Slugger Museum, Mary M. Miller Paddleboat, Kentucky Derby Museum, and more with overnight stays at the General Butler State Resort Park.
