Students Supporting Iditarod

As you may have gathered from the tracker, I am spending another night in Takotna.  We aren’t expecting another musher to leave McGrath until at least nine pm which means an arrival time here around eleven pm. So I thought I’d take advantage of the press not using all the wifi and get some pictures posted!

The Blankets for the Dropped Dogs project was a very successful project in which school kids donated three by three feet fleece blankets to the race vets to be used with dogs who were dropped during the race.  You can read more about it here:  LINK

Another project that lots of kids were involved in was creating centerpieces for the Musher Draw Banquet in Nome.  You can learn more about that here:  LINK  Here are some long overdue picture from that project:

Sorry if I missed your school’s project!  I will keep looking for blankets!
