"Mary gave a ride to a gentleman Kevin with Down Syndrome and his sister/caregiver, Kristen. I talked with Kristen today and she was in tears telling me the story of their ride. She couldn't believe he actually got in the trishaw and then at the end of his ride he flicked his hair back as though he was looking in the mirror as though wind was blowing through his hair. Kristen said, "He got it!!" This was such a beautiful moment for both of them. They will be taking more rides. She is so grateful for the experience." -Barb
"I spend so much time in my room. For a while you can find things to do -- puzzles, playing on the computer, Bible study -- but it’s hard. We’re all feeling that loneliness. But when I’m out on the trishaw, I feel like I’m queen for a day. It’s been such a blessing.” -Bonnie
"It’s so pleasant gliding along beneath the green leaves." -Merlin

My mom is in an Asst Living and my sister has ALS and you truly made an impact. They enjoyed the ride and wind in their hair!

“Good morning my name is Glen from RiverPointe and my partner on the ride yesterday was Janice. We had just a delightful time, went all the way down to the reservoir. Evan was our person that helped us, and he did a beautiful job. I just enjoyed talking with him and we had just a delightful time. I wanted to thank you all and say how much we really enjoyed it. Evan was a good bicycle rider and interactor with us. So, I want to commend him to you and also the whole idea of the ride. God Bless you and thank you.” -Glen
