Mesquite Ambucs recently gifted two Amtrykes at our July lunch meetings. The first went to 10 year old Isabella. This is her 3rd tryke. Isabella suffers from a degenerative neuro muscular disease. The second Amtryke went to Jeremiah who is in 11th grade. This is Jeremiah’s first Amtryke. These were great days to be an Ambuc!
Over three days, 20 Mesquite Ambucs and their friends constructed 60 feet of barrier free ramp with two platforms. The recipient had recently been confined to a wheelchair and could not leave his manufactured home which sat 32 inches above grade. Special thanks go to Don Riggs and Futureteleco who provided a crew to set the 17 posts and the Mesquite Home Depot who provided half the cost and delivery for the $2800 of materials needed. It was a great weekend to be an Ambuc!
