AMARILLO -- They're tricycles designed as theraputic bikes for kids with disabilities.

And now, three more children in our area have them thanks to a donation.

This afternoon, three Amtrykes were given to their new owners thanks to the Southwest Ambucs of Amarillo.

The organization raises money for the Amtrykes. Since they are specially designed for each child they can be very expensive.

Not only are Amtrykes fun for kids, they're also therapeutic.

An Amtryke builds self-esteem, strengthens muscles, and improves motor coordination and range of motion all while making it fun for the child.
