AMBUCS Begins Year-long Membership Drive


Time to join a great group of people! 

The Greater Champaign County AMBUCS is a enjoyable group to join!  We have lots of fun doing all of our projects from giving away Amtrykes, to thanking therapists for all they do with us, to fundraising, to maintaining AMBUCS Park, to shed cleaning!  We're always having a good time giving back to our community.  On September 19th, we'll be hosting our Charity Golf Outing fundraiser at Lake of the Woods in Mahomet. We'll be hosting the Scarecrow Festival in AMBUCS Park, east Urbana, on October 8th.  We meet once a week at Urbana Gardens for fellowship and to plan our events.  We have speakers at these lunch meetings and give away Amtrykes to people in our community!  We would be happy to have you join us at lunch to find out what this group is all about!  Contact any member to join us for lunch!  We'll save a seat for you!  Follow us on Facebook or Twitter to keep up with events.

October 8th - Scarecrow Festival in AMBUCS Park, University Avenue, Urbana. 10am-2pml


AMBUCS is a national charitable service organization consisting of a diverse group of men and women dedicated to creating mobility and independence for people with disabilities.  The Greater Champaign County Chapter has been making a difference in Champaign County since 1981.  Our main accomplishments are the 350 ramps we have built for low income families in Champaign County since 1981 and the 180+ AmTrykes we have given away in the last 10 years.  At right is the crew at one of our bike builds.


Please take a look at the many wonderful things we do, and consider becoming a member.  We can always use the help, and we love meeting new people in the community.  If you like, just drop by one of our Tuesday lunch meetings at Urbana Gardens to see what we are all about.  We'll even spring for lunch!

When you're ready to join us just print and fill out this Membership Application and we'll be happy to have you!

Scarecrow Festival

The date has been set for the 2022 Scarecrow Festival!  October 8th is the big day!  The fun will begin at 10am and continue until 3pm.  There will be hayrack rides, barrel train rides, lots of games for the kids, food and much more!  Come check out AMBUCS Park in East Urbana!

Due to the large amount of requests, we've had to stop accepting ramp applications for this season. Contact information will be shared again then.


Our club gives away therapeutic tricycles, called AmTrykes, to children and adults with disabilities. The process starts with a recommendation from a therapist.  In no time, a trike will be assembled and delivered for the person to enjoy!
