From Amtryke to Special Olympics: The Journey of Cole and the Need for a New Bike

UPDATE May 23: Great news! We have reached our fundraising goal for Cole’s amtryke in less than 24 hours, thanks to your generous contributions. Your support has been invaluable in helping us provide a bike for Cole. If you would like to continue donating, your contributions will go towards helping other kids receive their bikes too. We are truly grateful for your continued support and care for our son. Thank you!

Four years ago, Cole received an amtryke, a special bike designed for those who cannot ride traditional bikes, thanks to YOUR donations and the non-profit organization Capital City AMBUCS. Since then, Cole has grown and thrived, becoming a member of the PfISD Special Olympics team, attending summer camp, and learning to swim. However, he has outgrown his old amtryke and needs a bigger one.

To help Cole and other children on the waitlist, we are reaching out to our network again for donations. Capital City AMBUCS is a non-profit that helps families purchase amtrykes for those who cannot ride traditional bikes. His new tryke alone will cost approximately $1,200, and any additional funds raised will be passed on to the next person on the waitlist. We have also returned his old tryke back to the organization so it can be used again.

We appreciate all the love and support that our family has received since Cole’s diagnosis, and his confidence and unstoppable attitude come from his community always believing in him. As parents, we are grateful for our village and thankful for each and every person who has helped us along the way.

If you are able to donate, please visit Cole’s donation page at and specify “Cole” on the final PayPal page. If you are unable to donate, we kindly ask that you share the page with your community.

Let’s come together to help Cole and other children get the amtrykes they need to thrive and live their lives to the fullest. Thank you!
