Adapted tricycles range in price from $600 - $1200 depending on each child’s needs. Despite the many benefits, these tricycles are not covered by insurance, meaning children and their families are required to find outside funding sources or rely on grants to get their bikes. pdxAMBUCS exists to fill this gap, fundraising for the tricycles to fill as many as possible.
So far, with community support, we’ve been able to get more than 85 children onto their tricycles! However, children are still waiting for a year or more, due to the imbalance between need and funds raised. Our new sponsorship program pairs members of the greater community with a family to raise funds for a child’s bicycle, increasing the speed with which a child can receive her tricycle.
