Lakeside Ambucs is our local Rockwall/Rowlett area chapter of Ambucs. 

AMBUCS (pronounced AM-BUCKS) began life as American Business Clubs, a membership organization dedicated to helping people with disabilities. As our model changed to a more standard 501c3 charitable organization, that name no longer described us. So, in 1961, we shortened it to AMBUCS (pronounced AM-BUCKS). It’s weird but so are we, so it fits.

Nationally, AMBUCS now has more than 5,000 members in more than 150 chapters in over 30 states. Members work on a grassroots level to fulfill our mission, Inspiring Mobility & Independence. The Amtryke Therapeutic Tricycle Program is one of the main ways we do that. Our members fundraise for and give away about 3,500 Amtrykes each year.
