Biography

Rachael Scdoris, 24, was born in Oregon and graduated from Redmond High School in 2003. She says her occupation is sled dog racer and tour operator. Rachael was born with Congenital Achromatopsia, a rare vision disorder. She is colorblind and her acuity is 20/200. She is extremely light sensitive. She is a member of the Central Oregon Resources for Independent Living and the United States Association of Blind Athletes. Rachael was honored by the Women's Sports Foundation in New York City as one of the top women athletes in America. She served as Captain of her high school track and cross country teams. Rachael has been mushing since she was three years old and finished her first Iditarod in 2006. She says, "I love everything about dog mushing–working with dogs in the outdoors, the competition, and the ability to use all of my past experiences to improve my team. The Iditarod embodies all these things."  Rachael enjoys "anything outdoors not involving a ball."
