Standale team donates an AmTryke® therapeutic tricycle

March 4, 2013

Independent Bank's Standale team recently presented an AmTryke® therapeutic tricycle to a young rider named Elida. The office raised money for the bike by sponsoring special Jeans Days for associates. Elida and her parents were so excited to see her new bike!

The Standale office is actively involved with the AmTryke company, which is owned and operated by National AMBUCS™, Inc. AMBUCS is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to creating mobility and independence for people with disabilities.

Over 15,000 AmTrykes have been distributed around the world. The majority of these trykes are purchased by volunteer members of the AMBUCS organization and donated to children in need. These unique tricycles, which can be hand or foot operated, are designed to accommodate riders of all ages, sizes, and varying degrees of physical limitations. The AmTryke tricycle's therapeutic benefits include improved motor skills, strength development and self-esteem.

Independent Bank is proud to participate in this program that helps provide independence and mobility to children.
