Lifeline 100 Rides for the Capital Gazette

This year will mark the 5th Anniversary of the Anne Arundel County Lifeline 100 Century Ride! What began as a way to showcase Anne Arundel County’s scenic trails and roadways, and to spotlight cycling awareness, safety and its benefits, has grown every year into a celebrated annual event drawing hundreds of cyclists and supporters from around the Mid-Atlantic.
The Lifeline 100 has also been about raising funds to support local non-profit beneficiaries, including the Crisis Response System, Recreation Deeds for Special Needs, and BikeAAA. Given how the tragic shooting at the Capital Gazette newsroom has shaken our community, the Lifeline 100 will honor the lives lost by making the Capital Gazette Funds a 2018 beneficiary.  During the month of August half of all proceeds will go to the Capital Gazette Families Fund and the Capital Gazette Memorial Scholarship Fund.
This year’s Lifeline 100 will be on Sunday, October 7th. We will offer 100 and 65 mile trail/road routes, 30 and 15 mile paved trail routes, plus the free Children’s Bike Rodeo. We are aiming for 1,000 participants this year, and we can make that goal with your involvement.
(The Lifeline 100 is for riders of all ages and abilities. Those with special needs and their accompanying rider are eligible for a special 2 for 1 registration fee thanks to our generous Ride Leader, Prophasys. Please visit www.lifeline100.com/register for details.)

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
