EDMOND — Edmond's AMBUCS, a national nonprofit service organization, on Friday donated nine AmTrykes therapeutic tricycles to children in the Edmond and Guthrie area.
The local organization will donate another two AmTrykes next week, said Tom Hatcher, with AMBUCS.
AmTrykes are designed to allow people with disabilities to experience increased mobility.
These unique tricycles, which can be hand or foot operated, are designed to accommodate riders of all ages and sizes and with varying degrees of physical limitations.
Amtrykes cost from $400 for a basic toddler model to up to $1,200. Local AMBUCS fundraisers paid for the AmTrykes given away Friday.
National President Kent Clingenpeel and therapist Kathy Stevens were on hand to make sure each child was fitted properly to benefit their physical therapy needs.
