News Release, Cycling Without Age
Park Hall, Md. –A St. Mary’s County woman has formed the ?rst Maryland Affiliate Chapter of the international Cycling Without Age (CWA) program.
CWA is a social enterprise formed in 2012 in Denmark that offers recreational mobility to seniors in the form of volunteer-driven trishaws. Allen, an heirloom farmer and book illustrator in Park Hall, is also a two year cancer survivor. She believes cycling got her through her year of cancer treatments. She wants to share the “wind in your hair” and smiles with others.
“When I saw the joy a short ride in a trishaw brought people, I knew it wanted to do it here in St. Mary’s County” says Allen, who expects delivery of her ?rst trishaw this week. “I’ll be taking seniors, disabled, Hospice residents, and those who can’t get outdoors anymore for fresh air and companionship.”
“I’d love to hear from interested sponsors for more trishaws and to support the program,” Allen says. ALL rides are always free. “Is your organization, church, or senior facility interested in having me come by to help foster community, stories, and rosy cheeks?”

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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
