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?”
