Helping Dew Claw get to Nome - one checkpoint at a time

Jodi and the team will be working hard to get to Nome one checkpoint at a time. You can support Dew Claw by taking part in our Checkpoint Sponsor program. For a donation of $500 or greater you can choose from available checkpoints and have your name on your checkpoint. Each year the Checkpoint Sponsor Program is a big part of the support that gets our team to Nome.
Checkpoints can be sponsored by groups, organizations, or businesses. Sponsors may choose to share an encouraging message; or a checkpoint may be sponsored to honor someone special, a favorite charity, or organization. When making your donation, please let us know which checkpoint you would like to sponsor and how you would like your name or information to appear.

You may pick from available checkpoints. If no checkpoint is requested you will be given the next avaliable one on the trail, beginning with Anchorage. In addition to the Thank You cards sent to all members of Team Dew Claw, checkpoint sponsors will each receive a limited edition custom photo gift *.
*Thank you cards/gifts are handled after the racing season,
estimated shipping in May
