Kentucky Can: The 21st Century Campaign

At Kentucky, we don’t just set out to develop great students and athletes. On The Kentucky Road, we empower our Wildcats to grow as people and we challenge them to think outside of themselves. We do this by creating experiences that open the eyes of young people to the world around them.

 

At the core of those experiences are annual service trips sponsored by UK Athletics, both abroad to Ethiopia and right here in the Commonwealth. These trips are nothing short of life-changing for the student-athletes who make them each year. They illustrate the power that comes with wearing Blue and White and representing UK. They underscore the fact that so many are in need, both within and without our borders. They show the impact of servant leadership.

 

Our goal this One Day for UK is to raise $120,000, covering all costs related to our annual summer service trips and allowing us to imagine ways to enhance our impact in the Bluegrass and overseas. $120,000 for the 120 counties of Kentucky. $120,000 to extend the legacy UK Athletics has in Ethiopia. $120,000 to provide an incomparable experience for the next generation of leaders for our world.
