2018 Tenderness Tour

On September 1, 2018, nationally recognized activist Richard Propes heads out on his 29th Annual Tenderness Tour. Propes, a paraplegic/double amputee born with spina bifida, started the Tenderness Tour in 1989 with a 41-day, 1086 mile wheelchair ride around the State of Indiana. 100% of the proceeds from the 2018 Tenderness Tour will go to establish the Tenderness Award, a $500 annual scholarship at EGTI. The scholarship will be awarded annually to a student with a physical disability. Click here to learn more about the Tenderness Tour or make a donation.
