We all remember what it was like to ride a bike for the first time: the feeling of independence, the feeling of accomplishment, and the feeling of just being a kid. It is these feelings that AMBUCS members create through the AmTryke® therapeutic tricycle Project.
For years, the AmTryke has benefited and delighted children with disabilities. It gives children the opportunity ride a bicycle with their siblings and friends. This unique tricycle is hand and/or foot powered. It improves motor coordination, increases self-esteem and is fun to ride! Physical and occupational therapists acknowledge the AmTryke tricycle's therapeutic benefits to patients, citing improved motor skills and strength development. In fact, a therapist inspired the AmTryke.
The best part is that AMBUCS provides these AmTrykes for FREE!
When a parent or guardian requests an AmTryke for a child and are unable to cover the costs, AMBUCS places the child on the AmTryke Wish List. Check out the list of kids waiting for their own tryke by visiting the on-line Wish List.
