Statesboro AMBUCS to present AmTrykes

Written by  Thursday, 24 July 2014 09:39

  From 5 till 8 p.m. The Clubhouse will be the location for miniature gold fundraiser during which the Statesboro chapter of AMBUCS will present the children with AmTryke adaptive bicycles.  The bikes are designed individually for children to meet their his particular disabilities. 

 

  The Statesboro chapter of AMBUCS, which is a national service organization to provide disabled children with mobility and independence, was organized in 2013 and since then has presented eight AmTrykes to local children.  Kirsten Patterson and Katie Rich were instrumental in starting the local AMBUCS chapter.  They are therapists with The Therapy Spot which provides physical, occupational and speech therapy.

 

  Funds to obtain the AmTrykes come from donations from various organizations.  In a presentation this morning the Rotary Club of Downtown Statesboro will make a donation that will cover the cost of two of the bikes.  One of them will be presented then.

 

  The Statesboro AMBUCS chapter meets at 6 p.m. the first Thursday of the month at East Georgia Regional Medical Center in the Education room.  Anyone interested is invited to attend.
