Sponsor a Mile!
Help fuel the team! To train a dog team, it takes the highest quality fuel (dog food) to keep them running strong! From meat snacks (beef, poultry, salmon, pure fat, tripe, etc...) to full meals on the trail. During peak training and racing these dogs will need to consume 10,000-12,000 colories a day! They also sometimes need to wear those booties you might see in the pictures! We estimate this adds up to roughly $2 a mile. It does not sound like a lot but to prepare for a 1000 mile race it is estimated a team should have 3000-4000 miles of training before the race starts! That is a lot of time on the trail in preparation for a major race and a lot of dog food! By sponsoring a mile of the trail the dog's appetite will be much appreciated! Choose how much you are willing to sponsor to help fuel the team to the finish line!
