For the Red Kettle 2022 launch, Captain Ken Chapman, Area Commander for The Salvation Army enjoyed riding The Wheel at ICON Park for 10 hours.


In his fifth year of riding The Wheel at ICON Park, Captain Chapman remains dedicated to creative initiatives to further connect The Salvation Army, community partners, and residents.
