Sam Louters

Hollandale, MN

When I was eight years old I saved up for a dog sled. We had a pet Alaskan Malamute who pulled me around our yard. A couple years later my family bought our first three Alaskan Huskies. We now have a kennel of 30 Alaskan Huskies. I have run the Beargrease 120 five times. I love the trail and am excited for this years race! I would like to thank my siblings, Annika, Mike, and Levi as well as my mom Lois for making it possible for me to get my team ready for the race this year.
