Lancaster AMBUCS donates Amtryke to Schreiber Family

(LANCASTER, Pa.)-AMBUCS Club of Lancaster will be donating a $700 adaptive bike, called an Amtryke, to Schreiber client, Sam Altdoerffer, on Thursday, October 28 at 5:00 p.m. at Schreiber Pediatric Rehab Center. Sam is seven years old and has cerebral palsy. Typically wheelchair bound, the Amtryke gives Sam the ability to be active, building endurance and strength, outside of his typical physical therapy treatments.

Although Sam would benefit from using an Amtryke outside of therapy, it is not covered by insurance. With the help of Schreiber physical therapist, Jessica Gazsi, Sam’s family applied for a bike through the AMBUCS Club of Lancaster. Sam’s family is grateful for the donation and excited about the opportunities it gives to their energetic little boy.

Representatives from the Ambucs Club of Lancaster, the beneficiary of the gift, 7-year-old Sam Altdoerffer, and Schreiber physical therapist, Jessica Gazsi, will be available to answer any questions and take photographs.
