Join The Team
How can I help? That's a question we get asked a lot at races. There are many ways friends, fans, family and businesses help Ryan and team carry on his grandfather's legacy of racing to win the Iditarod Sled Dog Race. Some sponsor a mile, dog, or even the whole kennel. Some folks buy a t-shirt and that helps too! Below are some of our most popular options for stepping in.
Sponsor an "Iditarod Mile" in the next upcoming Iditarod. Mile sponsors receive recognition on our website.
Kennel Sponsors of $3,000 or more will have their company's logo patch displayed on our website, winter gear and sled bags for business visibility.
Going to be in Alaska this summer? Conveniently located just 45 south/east of Anchorage, you can visit our summer kennel, meet the dogs, and see them in action! Take a dog-powered wheeled cart ride surrounded by the gorgeous scenery around Girdwood, Alaska, and the Turnagain Arm. Along the way keep an eye out for beluga whales, Dall sheep, bears and moose.
A medical fund especially for emergency veterinary expenses. Through generous donations we have been able to finance Wildfire's multiple surgeries and physical therapy needs, and a few other medical procedures for our canine athletes. Use the donate button or contact us if you would like more information about arranging a custom donation.
Dog sponsors receive recognition on the dog's bio! Dogs and puppies are available to sponsor at the $250 giving level, and each may have multiple sponsors. Don't be shy! Who's your favorite pup? Funds help to feed the dogs top-quality performance kibble, raw proteins, fats, and supplements; update yearly vaccines; house and harness them for one year.
Every race usually has a designated "Meet the Mushers" time before the race starts. Pop over and say hello to your favorite dog, show your Team Green spirit, and cheer on the racers! Bring a sharpie and have Ryan sign your favorite Redington Mushing souvenir.
Donations in any amount help! Use the donate button below or contact us if you would like more information about arranging a custom donation.
Thank you and happy trails!
For almost his entire Iditarod Racing career, the winner of Iditarod received a new truck at the finish line in Nome. Sadly, that sponsorship ended just a couple years before Ryan won his first Iditarod in 2023. Perhaps you have a truck dealership and are looking to make a donation, or maybe you yourself won a truck in a game show but are more of a sedan fan? We could use another good truck with high payload and towing capacity, preferably new, with heated seats and extended cab... but we know better than to look a gift horse in the mouth. ;)
