Charity for Nov. 19-24: Gateway Tykes on Trykes

Gateway Tykes on Trykes is a group of Pediatric Physical and Occupational Therapists, along with local volunteers, dedicated to providing adapted tricycles to children with disabilities in the St. Louis area. Our therapists fit and assess each child to the trike and adaptations that they need. We purchase the trikes through fundraisers, donations, and grants, then build the trikes to be presented to the family.

Many of our trike recipients have never known the empowerment and freedom that comes with riding a bike, and we provide that for them. Our trikes also have therapeutic benefits by helping to build strength, balance, and coordination. Follow us on Facebook for announcements of upcoming events at Gateway Tykes on Trykes, or if you’re interested in getting involved, email us at tykesontrykes@gmail.com. All of our members and therapists work on a volunteer basis.
