Support "The Toughest Race on Earth" project at Kickstarter

 The 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 Kickstarter.com.
