Northeast Rehabilitation Hospital in Salem, NH along with AMBUCS assisted the hospital's pediatric physicaltherapists in evaluating and awarding 5 AmTrykes to their patients. So, before winter weather set in, 5 lucky children were out riding their AmTryke.
AMBUCS, a national charitable service organization is dedicated to creating mobility and independence for people with disabilities. For 85 years they have served various community needs. In 1990 AMBUCS became involved in the AmTryke project out of basic need. There are several models of the AmTryke, for all types and sizes of children with disabilities, to help them experience the fun of riding along with the other neighborhood kids...something they might not enjoy otherwise.
AMBUCS is working to establish non-profit chapters in the Northeast to promote mobility and independence for people with disabilities through community events that will bring in donations. Local AMBUCS chapters focus on giving away 5 AmTrykes (therapeutic tricycles) per year, sponsor one AMBUCS scholarship annually as a part of their charitable activities.
