You can't single out a volunteer on this race! All of the volunteers are amazing and make this race what it is. From the hospitality cabin volunteers to the checkers to the people making food (mushers love food) to the vets to the logistics folks; these people are giving their valuable time to help me pursue my dreams and I am always so thankful for all of them!
