I just received a newsletter full of news about off-season Iditarod events. If you’re not familiar (do you live under a rock?) the Iditarod is a sled dog race from Anchorage to Nome every year. For 8 – 10 days, mushers live, run, and ride on sleds pulled by a team of dogs through some of the most unfriendly terrain on earth. The race is held to commemorate the important history of sled dogs in the frigid north. The trail follows the route sled dogs took to bring life-saving diphtheria anti-toxin to Nome, on the coast of the Bering Sea, saving countless lives.
Here’s all the news that is news from the Iditarod:
This is your chance to win one of two 2020 Dodge Ram 4×4 Pickup Trucks! Or one of eight $1,000 cash prizes. Ticket price is $100 each and there are only 2,000 tickets available.
Call 1(800) 545-6874 to purchase. Drawing held Sept. 30 on The Iditarod Facebook Live.
