The 7th Annual K9-9K will be held on Saturday, April 29th, at Glenelg Country School, Ellicott City, MD
On Saturday, April 29, 2017, Glenelg Country School is holding the 7th annual K9-9K Walkathon/Run Family Fun Day to benefit The Marshall Legacy Institute. This event will promote the incredible work being done by mine detection dogs (MDDs) around the world.
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 Glenelg Country School 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 and/or prostheses for Landmine Survivors.
Following the walk/run, there will be food for sale, raffle prizes, and loads of family activities (moon bounce, crafts, music, etc)! MLI’s canine ambassador 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!
