NorthWapiti's Snickers
June 6, 2001 - March 11, 2007
Main Leader

During the running of the 2007 Iditarod, the NorthWapiti family suffered the tragic loss of the beloved leader Snickers. Many fans from around the world offered their support and condolences to Karen & Mark . One member of the North Wapiti Yahoo Group* suggested financial donations in honour of Snickers. Karen & Mark were touched by the outpouring of support and decided to create the "Snickers Memorial/Ulcer Research Fund" and donate all funds in her name to a group which studies gastric ulcers in working sled dogs.

For more details, please read the "Heartfelt Thanks" and "Snickers Fund" diary entries. To see Snickers forever running in lead, watch the Pretty Sled Dogs music video.

- I thank all of the donors below who thru their generosity are helping us honor Snickers memory.
