For the March 2015 Iditarod Race John Hall’s Alaska is proud to be sponsoring Laura Allaway from Trail Breaker Kennels located in Fairbanks, Alaska.
Though an experienced musher, Laura will be attempting to run her dogs from Willow, Alaska all the way to Nome, Alaska for the first time! Running the Iditarod is a very expensive endeavor and Laura needs to raise $30,000 to cover the cost. She has raised $10,000 so far but needs our help!
John Hall’s Alaska has pledged to match any donations from our guests and past travelers up to $7,500. Donations go to cover race expenses such as food drops, clothing supplies and equipment, and airfare to fly her whole team home from Nome.
Says Laura, “It takes every dog on the main-line working as a fluid unit, along with the musher, to make a great dog team. Help be a part of the Trail Breaker team!”
Donation Levels are as follows:
$500 LEAD DOG:
Donator Receives: Two Trail Breaker hoodies, two signed Granite books, authentic full set of trail-worn booties.
These dogs control the direction and pace of your team. Only the smartest, fastest, and best trained dogs run the difficult lead position. They are the ones that the musher gives commands. But mushers also need to trust in the lead dogs instincts to win the race.
$250 SWING DOG:
Donator Receives: Trail breaker hoodie, signed Granite book, authentic pair of trail-worn booties.
These are the ones who aid the lead dogs. Swing dogs can be leaders in training, or leaders taking a break from running lead.
$100 WHEEL DOG:
Donator Receives: Signed Granite book, authentic trail-worn bootie.
These are the dogs that run closest to your sled. They are typically your biggest, strongest dogs because they need to be able to keep the sled on the trail, even on corners or on difficult terrain.
Up to $100 TEAM DOG:
Donator Receives: Authentic trail-worn bootie.
Any dog in the kennel can run ‘team,’ from the top experienced dogs, to the most inexperienced yearlings. Size doesn’t matter here either. These are the ones who provide the power to get the team down the trail.
