From May 12-14, 2022, nationally recognized child advocate Richard Propes, a paraplegic/double amputee with spina bifida, will “wheel” from Indianapolis to Elwood, Indiana to support the life-changing work of The Catalyst Youth Center.
Since 1989, Richard has traveled over 6,000 miles in his wheelchair raising funds for organizations supporting children and families. Richard met Ben and Amanda back in 2018 when they showed up alongside Catalyst board member Sondra Tarter to support participate in one of Richard’s seemingly endless events in support of families. When Richard learned about The Catalyst Youth Center, he knew it was time to return the favor and to support Ben and Amanda’s vision for the youth of Elwood. While Richard “retired” from the Tenderness Tour after 30 years in 2019, he’s always known there would be times he’d be called back to the road. In 2022, he’s coming to Elwood!
