Who We Are

Most of us knows someone — a relative, a neighbor, a friend or acquaintance, or possibly even our self — with physical or other challenges. And, some of these challenges may have prevented them from participating fully in our community. Kenowa AMBUCS was started in the 1950’s with the goal of standing shoulder-to-shoulder with others to make a difference.

We donate custom-designed tricycles called AmTrykes to people of all ages so they can gain added independence. We provide mobi-mats to local communities with shorelines so wheelchairs and walkers can reach the water.

We add playground equipment to allow those with disabilities to participate with their friends. And, since we realize that physical therapists and speech therapists are a big support system, we provide scholarships to therapy students.

To meet these needs, we have two main fundraising efforts… the Memorial Day Parade & Race and the Denim & Diamonds banquet.

We’re Not Your Typical Business Club

We build long and lasting friendships within our group while we help those in our community build stronger friendships as well. Our members enjoy getting together for a monthly luncheon as well as an after-work drink. We welcome you to join us anytime! Check out our membership page to learn more.

Want to Learn More?

We’d love to buy you lunch or a drink! Our lunch meetings are the first Tuesday of each month, from Noon – 1pm at Sunnybrook County Club in Grandville. Our after-work get-together restaurants change each month, so reach out via our Contact Us page. Either way, please come and check us out.
Membership Information

“Bauer Elementary continues to be blessed by the Amtrykes. They provide engagement and sensory-motor outlets for our students who demonstrate the need for such devices. We can't thank you enough for your work. Without your donations, we would be challenged to provide these types of services for our students.”

Josh Meersma
Bauer Elementary School Principal, Hudsonville Schools

“Our students love to use the Amtrykes to explore the outdoors around our buildings and to travel to different buildings within our campus. Students enjoy using the Amtrykes at recess and physical education class with their peers, as well as in the hallways for movement breaks. The bikes have opened doors for our students to experience movement in new ways while completing everyday school activities such as recess, transitioning to the bus or class and recess.”
