AMBUCS hands out AmTrykes to deserving children

CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

Seven deserving people received brand new AmTrykes Monday night thanks to Savannah AMBUCS.

AMBUCS handed out the new rides at the Knights of Columbus on Christopher Drive.

AMBUCS is a non-profit dedicated to creating mobility and independence for people unable to operate a traditional bicycle. 

The majority of the Trykes handed out are purchased by volunteers and donated for free to financially needy children.

"The kids are, it's just like their first Christmas. It's a wonderful thing. They’re exploring where they've never explored before. We're thrilled to be a part of it,” said Fairway Lincoln Mazda General Manager Craig Redker.

"We don't go bike riding very often because we don't have any bikes for Alex. So now, we have a bike for Alex and this is the first time he's ever pedaled on his own and steered on his own. It’s really awesome,” said Cathie Howard, mother of AmTryke recipient.
