A very nice article about the good works of Brother Ray Cauthen of Concord…
At 89 years old, the Concord resident doesn’t see himself slowing down anytime soon.
“As long as I can walk I reckon,” Cauthen said when asked how long he thinks he’ll continue making the trips. He just made a trip to Greenville this week to transport a child to the hospital.
Cauthen has made more than 110 trips to a Cincinnati hospital that focuses on aiding children suffering from burns and needing cosmetic surgery. The 500-mile trip takes about eight hours one way. He has made more than 150 trips to Greenville, where doctors focus on orthopedic care.
A Shrine Club member, Cauthen got involved in the program to transport children when he made his first trip in 1990.
