THE STORY:

On January 1, 2016, Joseph Hogsett will be sworn in as the 49th Mayor of Indianapolis at the Hilbert Circle Theatre on Monument Circle. The following day, January 2nd, Indianapolis activist Richard Propes will be sending a hopeful yet clear message to Mayor Hogsett that the time has come for Indianapolis to once again be a safe place for children and families. In an effort to remind Hogsett of this high calling into which he's been entrusted, Propes plans to wheel around downtown Indy's Monument Circle 120 times, one time for each child who has died as a result of violence during the eight year administration of outgoing Mayor Greg Ballard. Propes, a longtime activist in the areas of child abuse and family violence whose Tenderness Tour has been awarded Prevent Child Abuse America's highest honor, the Donna J. Stone Award, doesn't intend this very special Tenderness Tour event to reflective negatively upon the outgoing mayor but instead simply to remind the incoming mayor that there is much work to be done and the lives of Indy's residents depend upon his effectively addressing crime, poverty and other issues impacting Indy's families. Propes, a paraplegic and double amputee with spina bifida, has a long history of wheeling long distances raising awareness of children's issues and funds on behalf of organizations working to improve the lives of others. Along with his uncompromising political statement, Propes plans to raise funds for Indy's Legacy House, an organization that provides support services and counseling to victims and individuals impacted by crime at no cost. Details for this very special Tenderness Tour are forthcoming - including a back-up plan should roads be impassable, though Propes has a long history of wheeling in all kinds of weather. He wants Mayor Hogsett to know that if he's willing to wheel an estimated 40 miles on what will likely be a cold winter day, he expects no less dedication in fighting crime from the city's Mayor.
