Amtrykes presented to keep people moving

BEAVERCREEK — Greenebucs recently hosted its annual Visibility Day at The Mall at Fairfield Commons.

The day is used to not only raise awareness about the organization but to also provide several adaptive Amtrykes for area children and veterans. Members and supporters of Greenebucs watched five children and one local veteran receive their tryke that was personally made to fit their adaptive needs. Additional trykes were delivered to children and veterans that were not able to attend.

During the event, Beavercreek Mayor Bob Stone and Vice Mayor Don Adams as well as State Rep. Rick Perales (R-Beavercreek) provided proclamations in support of the Greene County Chapter of AMBUCS (Greenebucs). These special trykes are made possible through local donors and are built by members of the club as well as local supporters. The Cincinnati Kiwanis Club Foundation, Inc. and Kiwanis Club of Cincinnati made a donation of $3,000 in memory of Bob Zimmerman, who was an active member who built a lot of trykes and was always a helping hand at past Visibility Day events. The mall also awarded Greenebucs a $1,000 donation to provide adaptive trykes for area veterans.
