Why am I involved with this fundraiser? Two years ago I saw a grandfather carry his grandson into a fitting session with his therapist to be fitted for an Amtryke therapeutic tricycle. The little boy was being carried because he had great difficulty walking on his own. The next year that same little boy brought tears to my eyes as I saw him walking on his own into our Cornbelt Chapter pancake breakfast. To him, that Amtryke therapeutic tricycle was a fun toy. To his family, his therapist, and to the AMBUCS who provided that tricycle, it was his key to mobility and independence.
Would you be willing to help me raise money to provide therapeutic tricycles to people with disabilities in McLean County Illinois.
Trek 4 Trykes is AMBUCS’ nationwide fundraising event created to provide Amtryke therapeutic tricycles to people with disabilities in the communities where our chapters are based.
Recipients, parents and therapists report that the Amtryke therapeutic tricycle provides increased strength, mobility and coordination as well as self-confidence and positive peer interaction. Plus, they are just plain fun!
