River Cities Rotary teamed up with their local Interact Club to build adaptive tricycles for three special needs students from their area.  The club had intended to build just one tricycle, or Tryke, with the help from the Rotary Foundation grant funds.  However, due to an overwhelming response from members, the club ended up sponsoring a total of three Trykes. 
The club had no difficulty with recruiting volunteers, with many Rotary family members coming to join in the efforts.  The special customized Trykes were purchased through Mississippi Bend Trykes, a non-profit organization that serves children and families in eleven counties in Illinois and Iowa.
