Save the Date!! April 30, 2016 K9-9K Walkathon & Run
On Saturday, April 30th, Glenelg Country School is holding the 6th annual K9-9K Run/Walk and Family Fun Day to benefit the Marshall Legacy Institute and promote the incredible work being done by mine detection dogs (MDDs) around the world. This fundraiser will help students at Glenelg Country School raise money to help children who have been injured by mines by providing them with medical care and prosthetic limbs.
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 or run, and a 9k run. All funds raised and registration fees will go directly towards assisting landmine survivors.
Following the walk/run, there will be a BBQ, raffle prizes, and loads of family activities! MLI’s canine ambassadors, MDD Nutmeg and Dino, 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 to walk/run with participants or come along for the family day activities!
