Support "The Toughest Race on Earth" project at Kickstarter
Yukon Quest dogsled race from Whitehorse to Fairbanks that starts in
February of 2013 will be the 30th running of the race. Scott Chesney and
Mark Gillet are trying to raise funds through Kickstarter to photograph
the race and turn those photos into a coffee-table sized book and DVD.
Both are experienced photographers, and have photographed previous Yukpn Quest races. Scott lives here in Fairbanks
and is a musher himself. This would be a great book, but they need to
raise $20,000.00 to make it possible.
Earlier this year someone
in Anchorage raised $30,000.00 through Kickstarter to photograph the
Iditarod. The Yukon Quest is better! The Yukon Quest is tougher!
Interior Alaska and the Yukon should be able to raise $20,000.00. Let’s
fund this book. Check out "The Toughest Race on Earth" at
