Inaugural Southern Maryland Non-Profit Community 5k Program Begins April 27, 2019

Letter to the Editor, Patuxent Habitat for Humanity

Four local Southern Maryland based non-profits (Bay Community Support Services, The Leatherneck 5K to benefit the Semper Fi Fund, Historic Sotterley and Patuxent Habitat for Humanity)  have teamed up to create the first ever 5k Passport system.  Run4ACause Southern Maryland Running Series begins April 27, 2019 and has scheduled races every Saturday through May 18, 2019.  The passport system promotes four great causes and encourages our community to come together, have fun, and support some very important causes!  Everyone that registers for all four races will be entered into a drawing for a grand prize.

Patuxent Habitat for Humanity will be the last in the series of the Run4ACause program.  Our Warior 5K Fun Run/Walk is being held on May 18, 2019 on Solomon’s Island.  Since our inaugaral race held  in 2013 the Warrior Fun Run/Walk has raised over $100,000.00 to help our local veterans with critical home repairs.  With funding from grant money, individual and corporate donors, sponsorships and the 5K race, Patuxent Habitat for Humanity has been able to provide critical home repairs to more than 40 veterans and their families in St. Mary’s County & Calvert County.  Our Veterans Critical Home Repair Program is designed to help local veterans with low to median low income by offfering critical home repairs and interior/exterior handicapped conversions. If you are a veteran or know of veteran that could benefit from this program please visit our website for more information. Sponsorship opportunities for our race are still available and information is listed on our website.

We encourage you to join us at the PHFH Warrior 5K Fun Run/Walk on May 18th on Solomons Island at 8:00 a.m. (for registration) or register early online at to help us support and celebrate our local veterans. Everyone deserves to age in place with dignity in their own home and community, especially our veterans!

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

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
