Who was Karen Stevens? Why is there a Kids' Memorial Triathlon in her honor? Karen was gifted at teaching children with special needs. During her years at the Severna Park Community Center (SPCC), she taught many children how to be safe and to enjoy the water. Sadly, in 2009 she passed away after a year-long battle with cancer. She continues to be remembered lovingly by her four children, husband and all the many people whose lives she touched.

In 2009, the SPCC held the inaugural Karen Stevens Memorial Kids' Triathlon in Karen's memory. All proceeds go towards her memorial fund which uses monies raised to provide swim lessons to children with special needs in Anne Arundel County. This year, enough money was raised to fund 100 lessons.

On October 16th, from 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. there will be a public meeting regarding the proposed MAGLEV High Speed Train, to be held in the cafeteria at Arundel High School. This project would speed travel time between Washington, DC and Baltimore to 15 minutes. As there would be an intermediate stop at the BWI Airport, it could affect the BWI Trail.

If you are interested in learning more and/or speaking at this meeting, mark your calendar for October 16th.
