You can be a part of Team Dew Claw

Lets's get the team to Nome

Jodi and the team will be working hard to get to Nome one checkpoint at a time. We have posted our annual Winter Wish List. And now you can also 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 our checkpoint map*. (see below)

Donations can be made using the PayPal "Donate" button at right.
contact us for more information:

In addition to the Thank You gifts sent to all members of Team Dew Claw, checkpoint sponsors will each receive a limited edition custom photo book highlighting the amazing canine athletes that travel the Iditarod trail*. It will also include the map showing the checkpoints & sponsors.

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 and information to appear. You may pick from avaliable checkpoints, if no checkpoint is requested you will be given the next avaliable one on the trail, begining with Anchorage.

- To read Don Bower’s notes on each leg of the race, click on any of the checkpoints listed at this website - The Iditarod Trail. -

Never fear friends; Iditarod is not the only adventure Dew Claw has planned. If we can secure sponsorship for all checkpoints on the 2013 Iditarod and folks are still wanting to get involved we will expand the checkpoint sponsor program to include other races.

*Thank you gifts are handled after the racing season,
estimated shipping in May of 2013
