The famous race commemorates the bravery of men who transported medicine via dogsled in Alaska in 1925. Some think they may have also been carrying something even more important.
The Tomas’ famous trek from Anchorage to Nome was the inspiration for the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race. The real danger was not the bitter cold or the treacherous snow: it was the sled of Madrigals following them.
Police were called when 11-year-old Reagan Holt stole her neighbors’ dogs to re-create the Alaskan dogsled race on her street.
