Trek 4 Trykes is a fundraiser to provide Amtryke therapeutic tricycles to children or veterans with disabilities right here in Stillwater, OK. Click the gray Join the Event button to make a difference today!
What is a Trek, you say? You can Trek it your way: Walk or Run! Our 5k route will circle around Boomer Lake in Stillwater. Registration begins at the East Side Pavilion at 9:00 am. Special Presentation at 9:45 am. Fun run and walk begins at 10 am. Come early and check out the Amtrykes on display.
Trek 4 Trykes registration is only $20 each but we encourage every "Trekker" to raise $100 or more in pledges or donations from friends, family and community connections - to get more riders rolling. Every person deserve a chance to be a biker!
Every registered Trekker and day-of-event volunteer will receive an awesome event t-shirt. Day-of-event registration is available, but Trekkers who register after April 15th cannot be guaranteed a t-shirt. Unregistered fundraisers of $20 or more (those who want to help but don't want to walk/run or volunteer) will also receive a t-shirt at the event.
The Cowboy Country Chapter of AMBUCS, a nationwide 501c3 charity dedicated to Creating Mobility & Independence for People with Disabilities, will host the event. ALL pledges are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.
Right now in Stillwater alone we have 10 children with disabilities waiting for funding for the fun and freedom of their very own Amtryke. Parents, recipients and therapists have noted that the Amtryke not only provides improved strength, tone and coordination but also confidence and positive peer interaction.
Learn more by visiting www.Trek4Trykes.org and then come join in the fun! You'll find directions for setting up your crowdrise fundraising page there too.
