AMBUCS Competing for Pepsi Prize

Pepsi is giving away money each month to fund ‘great refreshing ideas’ and this month AMBUCS is competing to win $50,000.  That money will be used to provide 100 AmTryke Therapeutic Bikes to children with special need throughout the country.  My daughter Emma received hers last Christmas and loves to ride all over the neighborhood now that the weather is nice.  If you would like to learn more about these special kids or even sponsor a bike for a child yourself you can view the wish list at ambucs.org

You can vote for the AmTryke idea once a day until the end of April at which time voting will be closed and each of the top 10 ideas will receive $50,000 from Pepsi.

Bike Day Creates Good Foundation

The Long Island Bike Day event held last week helped create a good foundation to set-up demo sites and provide therapeutic bikes to special kids throughout Long Island. 

Thank you to everyone who participated with a special thanks to Kelly at United Cerebral Palsy, Deb at OneCare PT and of course, our friends at AMBUCS for bringing all the wonderful bikes all the way out to Long Island for everyone to experience.

We hope to have the first bikes delivered by Christmas!  If you would like to donate to help more children get bikes of their own please visit our Long Island Bike Donation  page.  If you are not from Long Island, we’d encourage you to visit the National Wish List  and help a child from your area.

Thank you.
