Another successful Kid's Sled Dog Ride Day

Another Kids Sled Dog Rides is in the books. A key part of the CopperDog program is education on mushing and the sport of sled dog racing. The annual Kid's Sled Dog Ride event held December 16th at Aggasiz Park proves that learning can also be fun! Over a hundred children were treated to sled dog rides by Tom and Sally Bauer. The children also were provided hands on access to Jerry and Pat Trudell's sled dogs. The brisk weather was made more bearable by the free coffee, hot cocoa, and hot dogs.

CopperDog would like to thank the following people and organizations for helping make the Sled Dog Rides not only possible, but also a great success.

Tom and Sally Bauer of from Otter River Sled Dog Training Center and Wilderness Adventures for bringing two of their racing dog teams to provide rides for the children

Jerry and Pat Trudell of ...Sharks Came Racing for bringing some of their racing team for the children to pet and visit.

Pat’s Foods for providing the hotdogs and hot chocolate

Keweenaw Coffee Works for providing hot coffee

The Village of Calumet for providing power and clearing snow

Main Street Calumet for the use of the tents and tables

Keweenaw Kabin Keepers for making the track for the rides

Brockit, Inc. for capturing the event in photos

97.7 The WOLF for the radio advertising for the event

River Valley Bank for the use of their grill

And finally a special Thank You to the CopperDog volunteers that braved the cooler temps to help make the event special for the children.

The event was covered by the Daily Mining Gazette on December 18th, 2017.
