Trek 4 Trykes is a fundraiser to provide Amtryke therapeutic tricycles to people with disabilities in the Concho Valley. Join us for our first annual Concho Valley Trek 4 Trykes. Click the gray Join the Event button to make a difference today!
In our Trek, you can choose how to participate. You can walk, run or pedal - either a timed 5k or do a laidback noncompetitive 1 mile loop!
Concho Valley Trek 4 Trykes will be held on June 17, 2017. Registration begins at 8:00 am at 3245 Vista Del Arroyo Drive - the parking lot across from Unidad Park - all participants must check in at Registration to pick up their number and other Trek materials. Trek begins at 9:00 am.
1st, 2nd, and 3rd place medals will be awarded male and female 5k walkers, runners and bikers in 4 age divisions: ages 50 and up, 30-49, 15-29 and and 14 and under. Amtryke riders can choose to compete with the other 5k bikers or they can take the 1 mile loop and compete in the same 4 age divisions.
Our 5K route will take place on Red Arroyo Trail System, starting across from Unidad Park; participents will follow the trail crossing College Hills Blvd. and continue toward Knickerbocker Road until reaching the water station which is also the turn around point.
For those who prefer a less populated route and a non-competative atmosphere, we have the Millbrook Loop which measures in just under a mile and circles the two dog parks. Participants taking this route will not be timed; except the Amtryke riders.
The event will also feature 2 bounce houses, face painting, a fire truck for kids to explore, a balloonist, a bike repair station, Kona’s Snow Cones, food vendors and more.
The Trek 4 Trykes registration is just $25 for adults and $15 for children under 18, but we encourage every “Trekker” to raise $100 or more in pledges from their friends, family and community connections so we can get more riders rolling. This will also put you in the running for prizes for the top 3 fundraisers.
Every trekker and day of event volunteer will receive an awesome event t-shirt (adult sizes and Youth Medium available). Amtryke riders can choose to get a shiny red Amtryke cape instead. Day of event registration is available but trekkers who register after May 15 cannot be guaranteed a t-shirt or cape.
The Concho Valley Chapter of AMBUCS, a nationwide 501c3 charity dedicated to Creating Mobility & Independence for People with Disabilities, will host the event. All donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law (registration is not).
There are many children in this community and the Concho Valley who could benefit from the fun and freedom of their own Amtryke. Parents, recipients and therapists have noted that the Amtryke not only provides improved strength, tone and coordination, but also confidence and positive peer interaction.
