On Saturday, April 25th, Glenelg Country School is holding the 5th annual K9-9K Walkathon/Run and Wellness Fair to benefit The Marshall Legacy Institute. The event will promote the incredible work being done by mine detection dogs (MDDs) around the world and will also help students at Glenelg Country School raise money to sponsor their fifth life-saving canine. This year, Glenelg has added another component to our fun filled day! Wellness Vendors will be set up for all to enjoy!

Bring your canine companion and join us for a fun-filled morning that will kick off with a walk/run around the beautiful campus at GCS in Ellicott City, MD. There will be three different courses to pick from – a 1k walk, a 5k walk, and a 9k run. All funds raised and registration fees will go directly towards the sponsorship of a Mine Detection Dog.

Following the walk/run, there will be a BBQ, raffle prizes, and loads of family activities (moon bounce, etc)! MLI’s canine ambassador, MDD Senna, will also be on-site performing mine detection demonstrations, showing how dogs are able to safely and effectively “sniff out” landmines!

All leashed and well-behaved dogs are welcome!
