The Play For Kate Foundation, founded by Ashlee Bruggenschmidt, a Southern Indiana elementary school Principal who lost her 11-year-old daughter, Kate, in an ATV accident in 2015, has donated three trailers and three ATV Safety Sam animatronic robots to Indiana DNR Law Enforcement Division.

The donation, estimated at $60,000, will be used by Indiana Conservation Officers to provide effective educational programs to the citizens of Indiana.

The robots and trailers will be on display at the Indiana State Fairgrounds Farm Bureau Building on Tuesday, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. EST.

A program at that time will include comments from Law Enforcement Division Director, Lloyd Arnold and Ashlee Bruggenschmidt.

Indiana Conservation Officers will also be at the ceremony to demonstrate the capabilities of the animatronic ATV Safety Sam robots.
