Who we are


Gateway Tykes on Trykes is a group of local Pediatric Physical and Occupational Therapists along with local families dedicated to providing adapted tricycles to children in the St. Louis area and surrounding communites by raising funds for and assessing for, proper fit of the AmTryke® therapeutic trike to children & others who are otherwise unable to ride a regular bike.  Through our chapter we can provide highly discounted pricing on typically expensive adaptive, therapeutic tricycles.
  
  
1. A therapist recommends an individual for an AmTryke®
2. The individual will be evaluated and sized by an experienced Gateway Tykes on Trykes member or their own therapist if he/she has experience fitting adaptive tricycles
3. The family determines how much financial assistance they may need to purchase a tricycle
4. If assistance is needed, the individual is placed on our AmTryke® Wish List
5. The chapter raises funds through donations and charity events to provide funding to fulfill the needs of those on the AmTryke® Wish List
6. At a giveaway event, we fit the child with his or her very own Tryke and ensure they receive a proper, custom fit
