Welcome to the official about us page of Capital City AMBUCS,
the Austin chapter of National American Business Clubs AMBUCS TM, Inc. We are a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization committed to enhancing mobility and independence for individuals with disabilities. Our dedicated members work tirelessly to achieve this mission through community service and by providing AmTryke therapeutic tricycles to children and adults facing mobility challenges.
Our inspiring journey began in February 2008 with a pivotal four-hour meeting involving Cliff Bauerle, affectionately known as our SPARKPLUG, Greg Rusk, fondly referred to as the tool man, and two local physical therapists, Laurie Albert and Margaret Garwood. Their shared passion ignited the flame that set Capital City AMBUCS in motion. From that momentous day, we have been on a steadfast mission to make a positive impact in the lives of those we serve.
Since our inception, we have proudly given away 375 AmTryke therapeutic tricycles to children and adults in the Austin area. Witnessing the joy and newfound freedom these tricycles bring to the recipients reinforces our belief in the transformative power of mobility and independence.
As a chapter of the larger AMBUCS family, we are part of a nationwide network of approximately 6,000 members spread across more than 160 chapters in 35 states. Prior to the charter of Capital City AMBUCS on April 5, 2008, there was no local chapter serving southern Texas, making our presence in Austin even more significant.
At Capital City AMBUCS, we are driven by a shared vision of a more inclusive and accessible world for individuals with disabilities. Through our continued dedication, outreach, and support, we strive to create a community where everyone can thrive and experience the joy of newfound mobility.
Join us in our journey of making a positive impact in the lives of those we serve. Whether you’re interested in volunteering, donating, or simply learning more about our mission, we welcome you to be a part of the Capital City AMBUCS family. Together, we can achieve great things and empower individuals with disabilities to reach new heights of independence and freedom.
