Walk to help restore safety in mine-affected countries with your dog! The morning will kick off with a run/walk with three different courses to pick from - a 1k walk, a 5k walk, and a 9k run. Afterwards enjoy loads of family activities including a moon bounce, crafts, music, facepainting, and much more! Marshall Legacy Institute’s canine ambassador will also be on-site performing mine detection demonstrations!

Proceeds from this event go towards sponsorship of a Landmine Detection Dog and/or the purchase of prosthetics for Landmine Survivors.

I Want to Know More!

List of 3 items.

  • How is Glenelg Country School Involved?

    The Children Against Mines Program (CHAMPS)! It all began with Dragon, a mine detection dog (MDD) sponsored by the GCS Community in 2008. MDD Dragon was deployed to Afghanistan to clear land behind a school which our students would later build a relationship with over Skype. Through CHAMPS, Lower School students have raised money to sponsor five mine detection dogs and seven landmine survivors.
  • Tell Me More about Mine Detection Dogs.

    MLI launched the Mine Detection Dog Partnership Program (MDDPP) in 1999. The program utilizes government and private donations to purchase, train, and deliver Mine Detection Dogs (MDDs) to landmine removal organizations within a mine-affected country. MLI has donated more than 200 dogs. None of MLI’s Mine Detection Dogs have ever been hurt or killed while working.
  • What is the Marshall Legacy Institute?

    The Marshall Legacy Institute (MLI) is a Virginia-based non-profit organization committed to helping war-torn countries help themselves. Our current focus is eliminating the humanitarian dangers and the destabilizing effects of landmines.
