Two Harbors, MN

Ive been handling for my cousin and uncle for years, this year it’s their turn to handle for me! Born and raised on the North Shore. I’ve had the chance to do some amazing things, from sailing across Lake Superior to camping in the BWCA, and I can’t be more excited to add running my first sleddog race to the list. Special thanks to Maple Ridge Kennels, 10 Squared Racing & Canine Health Forward for help making this possible. I’d like to thank Dave & Jill, Jim & Jody, my parents and a little thank you to Jonny for all your help and encouragement this season !

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START RUNNING SLED DOGS AND HOW OLD WERE YOU WHEN YOU STARTED?

What inspired me to try mushing was the dogs love to run. When you are preparing a team to go for even a simple afternoon jog around the property they are so excited and happy to run, it really creates a beautiful moment.

The “goodest” dogs
Need your help

What a sled dog looks forward to most after a long day of racing is a nice bed of straw! But guess what happened at last year’s race? Someone stole all our straw right before the race start! Thankfully, great fans like you helped us out during the final hour to provide this vital supply for our amazing dogs.

These dogs simply are the best – and we want to be able to continue treating them that way! Donations from fans like you make that possible. Would you find it in your heart to help us out? No amount is too small in sled dog world!
