AMBUCS is an organization dedicated to bringing mobility and independence to people with disabilities, primarily through donating their Amtryke therapeutic tricycles to those in need.

The final lecture in the Encourage Health Education Series was by Bauer Coslick, owner of Vitality: Acupuncture +Integrative medicine, who spoke on, “10 Ways to Reduce Inflammation in the Body to Improve Longevity Through Acupuncture Practices.” The presentation covered the healing effects of acupuncture and the science behind it.

“The lecture series has been a fantastic opportunity for those in the Savannah area to learn about health related issues and ways to better themselves,” said Matt Clements, director of marketing for Enmarket. “We are ecstatic to give AMBUCS the final grant award due their dedication in our community.”

Clements presented the check to Kevin Sheehan, President-Elect for National AMBUCS, before Bauser’s lecture.

During this final presentation, the grand prize was awarded to AMBUCS. At the beginning of the series, each organization received a QR code to be scanned with purchases at any of the 61 enmarket stores. The organization with the highest number of scans was selected as the winner and received the $1,000 final check, which Sheehan accepted as well.
