BENEFITING: National AMBUCS
We recieved some awesome news today!! Elliana has been placed on the National Wish List for an Amtryke Therapeutic Tryke! We have tried every kind of tryke/bike from every local store, and for kids with CP and other disabilities riding a normal bike is almost impossible. Elliana would beg to ride bike with her brother and the other kids and the only thing we could find to work was her cozy coupe. We finally found Ambucs, which is a non profit organization that raises money to supply all children that qualify with a therapeutic tryke! They recieve countless requests for trykes and currently have over 300 applicants waiting, these kids can end up waiting for anywhere from 2 months to 2 years for their Amtryke. I have been asked many times how people can help or donate. These trykes are anywhere from $500 to $1500. There are amazing stories of children using the trykes in school instead of having to use a wheelchair, children being able to play with their friends for the first time outside, and kids feeling independent for the first time doing something so many of us take for granted daily. You can donate directly to Elliana's tryke, you can donate to a child in need in your own state, or you could donate to the child that has been waiting for their tryke the longest. Anything you decide to do would make you a hero in the eyes of a child just wanting to ride a bike!
