A trishaw bike is a three-wheeled vehicle for two passengers, pedaled from behind. Ginna Calvin, left, is the Staff Development Nurse at Vista Prairie’s Copperleaf Community in Willmar, MN. The picture within the picture shows Ginna giving a ride to residents Barb and Thea on a loaned trishaw bike. At a recent Copperleaf open house, Ginna was enthusiastically raising funds for Copperleaf to get its very own “Cycling Without Age” trishaw. Why? Freedom.
“We want our residents to experience, again, the freedom of being on a bike, like when they were kids,” Ginna explains. “Copperleaf is just across the road from a trail system that serves Destination Playground and Robbins Island Park. It’s Willmar’s central park and connects to one of the largest fully accessible recreational areas in the country.”

We appreciate Ginna’s dedicated service and that of Staff Development Nurses in most Vista Prairie communities. They work with residents to complete health assessments, provide employee orientation and training, conduct on-going education to existing staff, and offer great bike rides!
