Biography

Larry Daugherty, 42, was born in Provo, Utah but raised in Arvada, Colorado until age of 13. His family then moved to Auburn, Washington where he attended Auburn Senior High School. Larry is lucky and proud to be mushing for Atka Kennel with Jason Campeau’s team.
He completed his undergraduate studies at Albertson College of Idaho with a degree in history. Shortly after 9/11, he accepted a job as a paramedic in Connecticut where he worked for a year prior to enrolling in the University of Utah School of Medicine, where he graduated in 2007, then completed his radiation oncology residency in 2012 at Drexel University in Philadelphia. He came to Eagle River, Alaska, in September of 2014 after working at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida. He now practices at Alaska Cancer Treatment Center in Anchorage, where he treats most types of cancer with radiation.
In 2017, Larry completed the Last Great Race, followed by a climb of Mt Everest, where he reached the South Summit on April 17, 2017. He is the first and only human to have accomplished this. Look for prayer flags on the side of Larry’s sled, which he carries in honor of his cancer patients. The flags symbolize hope, strength and well-being–a gesture Larry sends to all afflicted with cancer anywhere in the world. Larry is blessed to share his life of adventure with his wife Prairie of 18 years and their five kids, Bailey, 17, Calvin, 15, Azalea, 11, Conrad, 8, and Charlie, 6.
