With a few pushes of the pedals, Vincent Troxell, 12, of Flat Rock turned the wheels to his new bright red tricycle.
Emily Freeman, a physical therapist and owner of Kids N Motion, helps Vincent Troxell, 12, who has cerebral palsy, get ready to try out his AmTryke therapeutic bicycle which was donated by AMBUCS on Tuesday.
“Now you’re a racer,” said Allan Berg, president of Western Carolina Friends of AMBUCS. “You’ll be in the Winston Cup.”
On Tuesday at Kids N Motion Physical Therapy, Vincent and Brandon Bryant, 10, of Flat Rock, received bright red AmTrykes. Brandon and Vincent’s names were on miniature licenses plates on the backs of the bikes.
The boys have physical disabilities, and the specialty trikes are therapeutic as well as fun. AMBUCS provides the bikes, which cost between $450 and $650, at no cost to the families through donations from the community.
