About Looking For Trouble 5k 2024

Ready! Set! Go!


      Community Mediation Center of St. Mary’s County is Looking for Trouble again next March 30 at our 5K run-walk in Charlotte Hall, and we invite you to be a big part of what makes this annual spring kickoff event a grand success!


      Sponsors and donations to Looking for Trouble helps our volunteers continue providing mediation services at no cost to people in St. Mary’s who are experiencing conflict in their lives. We are resuming in-person mediations, and further enhancing that long-standing role of giving people a setting to find their own solutions to a wide range of disputes, ranging from landlord-tenant agreements to parenting plans. With your support, our community outreach has expanded toward assisting youth in our county and working with our many partners in providing workshops and presentations, and at the new Health Hub in Lexington Park.


      Donations allow us to fulfill a required match of our annual grant from the Maryland Judiciary’s Mediation and Conflict Resolution Office, the funding allows for training in specialty mediations, printing materials to encourage conversations, meeting our operational costs, and continuing our many services in alternative dispute resolution.


     All Looking for Trouble participants on the Three Notch Trail will head out from and return to St. Mary’s Northern Senior Center, where your business or organization will be recognized for your support, and new this year, can take an active part in engaging with everyone at the event and highlighting your role in our community by hosting a sponsor table, entering a team in the race and dancing in the dance-a-thon!    


     Please join our title sponsor, PNC Bank, and other valued partners and friends in supporting this community event.
