Lillian Lights Up!

Lillian gives us an 1,000 watt smile as she makes the first few pedal rotations on her brand new ProSeries 1412 - provided by Trek4Trykes. This reaction is what all Amtryke-smitten AMBUCS live for!

Don't miss this short video of her first ride. Her mom chases after her in the next moment; to put her shiny new red helmet on, we trust!

New Blog Launched!

We are thrilled to announce the launch of a new AMBUCS Blog - brainchild of National President Kevin Sheehan. The blog will cover a variety of topics but will focus on offering advice from chapters to chapters!

Do you have insight into a common sticky problem? Say, fundraising, membership retention, setting up a scholarship program, gaining media attention, structuring giveaways, etc? Please reach out to Kevin!

Christmas Cheer for Caleb!

Caleb's parents have six grandchildren, three adopted children and two foster daughters. Needless to say, there was a crowd to cheer him on as Caleb took his first ride on Christmas. "You have given our son an opportunity to enjoy what every other eight year old boy enjoys - being outside riding a bike," his mom said. "My husband just lost his job and we would have never been able to provide a bicycle for him."

When Caleb was adopted at six weeks old, his parents were told he would never see, hear or walk. But Caleb's the type of kid who proves people wrong. Today, he sees with glasses, hears with tubes, and has been walking since he was four years old. Now, Caleb rides  - thanks to supporters of the National Wish List. Consider sharing the gift of Amtrykes today!

Creating Mobility & Independence for People with Disabilities

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 Creating Mobility & Independence for People with Disabilities. 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...
