As many of you who have been reading my blog for a while may know, there is a sled dog race held in this region every April called the Kobuk 440. This race is run, for the most part, by volunteers. The Kobuk 440 Racing Association is given some money from the Kotzebue Dog Musher's Association (KDMA), but this is not nearly enough to cover our operating expenses and purse. To run this race we need sponsors.
This year, to help support the Kobuk 440 Dogsled Race we have come up with the Buy a Mile program. You can become a sponsor by buying a mile of the race for $44. The funds from the Buy-A-Mile program help with race costs, which increase every year. In addition to assisting with race costs, the funds from the program go to sweeten the purse for the dedicated hard working mushers and the dogs that love to run for them.
Buy your mile to have your name listed on the Kobuk 440 website and printed on race headquarters thank you poster. You can use the paypal button located on the sidebar of my blog. If you don't want to use the paypal button you can send a check to
