The Yukon Quest 1,000 Mile International Sled Dog Race welcomes a new sponsor on board for 2013. RefrigiWear joins the race as the Veterinary Care Sponsor.
RefrigiWear will provide 15 sets of gear for Yukon Quest veterinarians to help them stay warm on the race trail, including coats, bib overalls, mittens, boot liners and balaclavas. They will also provide cash sponsorship.
“We are thrilled to partner with RefrigiWear,” said Marti Steury, Yukon Quest Executive Director – Alaska. “Our veterinary staff has already been testing out their new winter gear and are giving rave reviews. With temperatures dropping as low as the -50s during the race, it’s important to keep our vets warm and comfortable while they carry out their vital tasks. We look forward to a great year on the trail!”
