The Will Howell Story

Updated: Jan 29

How one Amtryke inspired an Entrepreneur and facilitated success.


Four and a half years ago, Savannah Ambucs member Kevin Sheehan was in Darien, Ga. attending the Benedictine vs. McIntosh Academy football game. Before sitting down he decided to visit the concession stand and on his way, he met the Howell family. After noticing Will Howell’s struggles to walk, he approached the family and told them about Savannah Ambucs and our Amtryke 3-wheel specially adapted bike program. He explained how the process worked and the Howells were overjoyed to hear there was a way Will could finally ride a bike. On January 19th, 2015 he happily received his Amtryke.

Upon graduating in May 2019, Will made a visit to his pediatrician, Dr. Ben Spitalnik. Dr. Ben told Will and his family that he needed a purpose, not just a job. They began researching various ideas and realized Will’s love of suit ties was something he was very passionate about. Ties do more than just give Will something to do, they make him happy and proud while providing a sense of purpose. As you can see in the video, Will uses his Amtryke to ride to the post office every day and mail his packages. Inspiringly enough, when he started his business, Will Power Ties, he committed to give back 5% of his proceeds to Savannah Ambucs as a way to show appreciation for all they have done for him.
