2013 Catalyst Team Member of the Year
Volunteers are what makes non-profits successful. We could not have made as big of an impact on the number of people we were able to reach this year without them. In 2013, many people stepped up and gave everything they had to make each event a hit. Every year we select one person who we feel has demonstrated a commitment to the growth of Catalyst, having both the skill and passion to leave a lasting impact on our participants, and truly going above and beyond. It was difficult for us to pick just one person that exemplified what a Catalyst Team Member looks like…so we picked two! We would like to recognize Chad Burdyshaw and Desiree Stewart as our Team Member(s) for the Year for 2013. Chad and Desiree are an incredible couple who have a combined love for climbing and dedication to this organization. Although Chad lives in Chattanooga and Desiree in Birmingham they travel to combine forces and make things happen, ultimately changing the lives of many physically disabled athletes. You might recognize them from the Atlanta Clinic, Knoxville Clinic or even from one of our many outdoor clinics. From Catalyst Sports, a sincere and heartfelt, "THANK YOU!" goes to Chad and Desiree for all of their time and support.
Catalyst Sports is dedicated to providing adaptive climbing opportunities to anyone with a physical disability.
Without your financial support, we would have been unable to grow into the largest adaptive climbing program in the country. Please consider continuing to sponsor our climbers as they reach for new heights
