Inspiring Mobility & Independence

Wait, I’m confused, are you AMBUCS or Amtryke? And those are very strange names, BTW. Yeah, we hear that a lot. When you’ve been around since 1922, you’re bound to pick up lots of ‘character’ along the way.

AMBUCS began life as American Business Clubs, a membership organization dedicated to helping people with disabilities. As our model changed to a more standard 501c3 charitable organization, that name no longer described us. So, in 1961, we shortened it to AMBUCS (pronounced AM-BUCKS). It’s weird but so are we, so it fits.

In the mid-1990s we started making and giving away therapeutic tricycles as a national project. Just to keep everyone confused we called both the trykes and the company that makes them, Amtryke. Amtryke, LLC is fully owned by National AMBUCS, Inc.

AMBUCS now has more than 5,000 members in more than 150 chapters in over 30 states. Our members work on a grassroots level to fulfill our mission, Inspiring Mobility & Independence. The Amtryke Therapeutic Tricycle Program is one of the main ways we do that. Our members fundraise for and give away about 3,500 Amtrykes each year.
