Ryan Redington, first to White Mountain, wins Northrim Bank Achieve More Award
Veteran musher Ryan Redington (bib #5), of Knik, Alaska was the first musher to reach the White Mountain checkpoint today at 4:12 pm with 8 dogs in harness. Northrim Bank’s award was first given out in 2018. Redington receives a $2,500 check and a special trophy that resides at Iditarod headquarters year-round.
“Our award inspires all Alaskans to ‘achieve more’ and we are honored to celebrate the tradition of mushing in Alaska. As an Alaska grown bank, we know the pioneer spirit it takes to thrive in Alaska and also on the Iditarod trail. We are excited to continue our support of the Iditarod and look forward to welcoming the mushers into Nome at our new branch on Front Street. We are honored to be able to present the Northrim Bank Achieve More award to Ryan who arrived first in White Mountain this year. We are proud to announce the additional gift to the community of White Mountain in honor of Ryan’s achievements along the trail,” said President Mike Huston.
The Northrim Bank Achieve More Award will be re-presented to Redington at the finishers banquet in Nome on March 19.
