On April 28th, Glenelg Country School (GCS) hosted its 8thannual K9-9K run/walk! Children, parents, faculty, community members and many, many dogs gathered on a beautiful Saturday morning at the GCS campus to walk/run for those who can't because of landmines and to celebrate the work of lifesaving dogs. We are deeply grateful to Glenelg Country School and the Glenelg community for their continued and generous support.
This year was the most successful K9-9K yet - together with the proceeds from Glenelg's 2018 CHAMPS fundraisers, the children have completed yet another campaign to sponsor their 7th mine detection dog and to help a landmine survivor in Bosnia or Yemen! We are so incredibly proud of Jennifer Cope, Glenelg Country School teacher who helped to organize this event, Anne Wooleyhand, Head of GCS Lower School, and all of the CHAMPS students. Thank you for your commitment and dedication to help others!
CHAMPS Glenelg students previously sponsored MDDs Barrett, Country, Dragon, Jason, Spirit, and Woody. Together, these MDDs have saved countless lives and searched thousands of square acres of land in Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Iraq. We are looking forward to updating you on the work of Glenelg's next MDD!
