Save the Date!!  April 26, 2014 K9-9K Walkathon & Run

On Saturday, April 26th, Glenelg Country School is holding the 4th 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 sponsor their fourth life-saving dog.

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 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 to walk/run with participants or come along for the family day activities!
