I am a Yupik man from Akiak, AK and have been running dogs for years now. Feels like I’ve run dogs all of my life and take breaks here and there to do other stuff when I can. I am running this year as a thank you to my family first, my friends and my sponsors. Thank you for having my back and for all your support. I want to dedicate this run in memory of my beloved nephew Orion, my Aunt Sharon and good old friend and mentor Bill. My family, I love you and to my sponsors, I thank you.
