Amtrykes For Children

Children with disabilities are getting help to keep up with their siblings and friends. 

Eight kids received "Amtryke" bikes today. They were donated to them by the local chapter of the "Ambucs" organization. The president of the group John Teague says not only do the bikes help the child exercise, it helps their self-esteem as well. 

"With these therapeutic tricycles we're able to give them they're able to work with their hands or their legs so they're able to get out there and play with other children in the neighborhood." 

Teague also says his group tries to give away as many of these bikes as possible and they've been donating the "amtrykes" for the past ten years.
