American Amtrykes?!

Don't miss this Q & A-style letter with Executive Director Jay Laurens about bringing Amtryke assembly state-side. Even if you heard the announcement at National Conference in Reno, there will still be some fresh news for you.

The AMBUCS National Board, Amtryke Advisory Board and staff are all so excited about this new era in AMBUCS history!

We hope you'll plan to join us next year in Pittsburgh, PA - October 2-5, 2019.

Making Labels Disappear

National AMBUCS has removed the word 'disabilities' from its tagline and mission statement. The move was unanimously approved by the National AMBUCS Board of Directors at National Conference in Reno, NV.  Please read this letter from National President Randy Cloud, explaining the decision.

One mom said, "Reeve has disabilities, AND he is part of the population that your organization loves and serves.  What I like about your new mission statement and what you do, is you make those disabilities disappear.  They are gone from your tagline, just as they are gone from Reeve when he rides his tryke."

Happy Trails, Edgar!

From Edgar's mom to Wish List Donors: I am writing to thank you for the bicycle for my son Edgar Steven. Your donation has fallen to us as a gift from heaven, since he had an operation on his left leg and the bicycle will serve him to have a quick recovery. On behalf of the Cardenas Hernandez family, we are grateful to you and tell you that people like you are like angels sent by god.
Thank you so much and god bless you.
Happy Holidays

Daniel Gets Wheels

Daniel (11) just received his Amtryke due to the generosity of Wish List donors. His mom said he tries to play it cool generally, but she could tell he was really excited. And that smile says it all!

Daniel's therapist said, "This tryke will help keep his legs strong while having a blast with friends and family. Thanks AMBUCS!"

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.

We will bring a trailer-full of trykes & adaptations to you!

While visiting, we can present an In-Service training session for your professional staff and, if you would like, a Bike Evaluation Day where we help you fit your clients to the best riding solution for them. We would love to show you how to bring an effective bike program to your fair city! There is no cost for a Road Show visit but our calendar fills up fast. Learn More >

We Change Lives...

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 >
