National Conference App

This year, we have an app for that! National Conference attendees will have access to Attendify. You can see the schedule in real time, use interactive maps to get where you're going, share images and thoughts on the big screen, answer polls about sessions, create a profile (that shares as much or as little as you'd like) and set up meetings with other attendees! It's like the social media network just for this conference and YOU.

Want to try it out? Yep, it's free and already set up and ready to go. You'll find directions here.

Mighty Avery!

This is Avery, our mighty lion of a 4 year old. Our goal for him is to lead as regular a life as any 4 year old - to recognize his disabilities but also to build his confidence and strength daily through them towards overcoming any obstacle. We are not alone: he has a community of family, friends, and supporters who contagiously follow his smile and energy for life.

We add to that community the unparalleled generosity of the AMBUCS, who our devoted PT Amy brought to our attention. They have allowed him to achieve his dream by finding confidence and strength with his Amtryke. As you can tell by his smile he is over-the-moon about his wheels. - Adam (dad)

New Blog Launched!

We are thrilled to announce the launch of the 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!

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!

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...

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 >
