Creighton Students Distribute Special Trikes to Area Children

Creighton University physical therapy and pre-physical therapy students, in partnership with the Nebraska Friends Chapter of AMBUCS, on April 29 presented specially modified tricycles to nine metro-area children with disabilities.

Last fall, students worked with local physical and occupational therapists to determine what tricycle modification each child would need. The modifications were then incorporated into AmTryke therapeutic tricycles, which can be hand or foot powered.

The Nebraska Friends Chapter of AMBUCS, a charitable service organization dedicated to promoting mobility and independence for people with disabilities, and Kind World Foundation financed the project.
