The statue is a permanent tribute to the troopers of the Kentucky State Police who serve the citizens of the Commonwealth of Kentucky each day. It will represent those who have served, those who serve today, those who will serve, as well as those who have died in the line of duty. The statue will be the focal point at the new Kentucky State Police Academy in Frankfort.
Organized in 2012, The Calipari Foundation benefits several charitable activities in Kentucky. In addition to raising funds for charities, The Calipari Foundation hopes to raise awareness regarding philanthropy, encouraging members of Kentucky communities, specifically the basketball community, to support worthy causes. Most notably, The Calipari Foundation raised $2.5 million for the Red Cross with its "Hoops for Haiti" campaign. Additionally, it has assisted with Samaritans Feet, Paws for Ability (Service Dogs for Veterans), and many other projects.
