2016 is a Leap Year, and that means we all get an extra day this year on the 29th of February. To make the most out of these extra 24 hours Chevrolet is encouraging everyone to fulfill acts of kindness for others.
“Time is such a precious commodity and having an extra day this year presents an amazing opportunity for all of us to do something impactful,” said Paul Edwards, Chevrolet Vice President of Marketing. “The Chevy team is going to take those extra hours and put them towards doing unexpected acts of kindness for people – something that we hope others will embrace and repeat.”
The National Corvette Museum, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit, and the NCM Motorsports Park are participating by offering a Corvette experience contest for Bowling Green / Warren County school children who exemplify leadership qualities by participating in volunteer work. Five deserving kids, from Kindergarten through 8th grade, will be selected to receive a ride in a Corvette around the track, complimentary admission for them and their immediate family to the National Corvette Museum, certificate for ice cream from the Corvette Café, and a free t-shirt from the Corvette Store.
“Sometimes I think we overlook the impact children can have on our community,” said Museum Executive Director, Wendell Strode. “We say this as an opportunity to encourage kids to #DayItForward and then get rewarded for their actions.”
Children can be nominated on the NCM Motorsports Park’s website by a teacher, coach, parent or other member of the community at (website address). Winners will be announced on March 4 and the Corvette laps will be given on Tuesday, March 15 to kick off the new Trek at the Track nights.
