THE DEEP ROOT

 

Greetings from the Iditarod training trail! 

The Deep Root Kennel has spent the last 4 years training to enter the 2020 Iditarod Sled Dog Race.  My team and I have another extensive year of training but we are beyond excited for this once in a lifetime opportunity. 

To me, this race isn't just about a our accomplishments, but bringing this experience to others. I want to inspire others in reaching for their fullest potential, educate and empower them with the skills to do so, and for others to experience their own dreams, aspirations and purpose.  I take all these children, youth, community organizations, and Deep Root Cause participants with me on this journey.  They are the mission and the team and I are the means. 

The Deep Root Cause is our 501(c) non profit that brings this experience, information and adventure to many youth organizations, community groups, schools, businesses and workshop participants through demonstrations, presentations, workshops, rides and kennel visits.    I interweave stories of dog mushing information and adventures with the life strategies and skills that has brought me the ability to pursue this dream.

As this dream grows, so do our expenses.  Until 2019, my family and I solely supported the Iditarod quest and CAUSE's costs. However, we are seeking donations to help offset some of the expenses for this coming year. 


Please consider joining in this adventure as we bring the experience of crossing some of the most rugged terrain our country has to offer to you and the participants of the CAUSE.
