IPSSSDR Junior Mushers
International Pedigree Stage Stop Sled Dog Race
January 12, 2010
Select students from Jackson, Pinedale, Lyman, Mountain View, Alpine, Evanston and Herriman, Utah ages 9-13 will participate in a sled dog race of their own, the IPSSSDR Jr. Stage Stop on Saturday, February 7, at 3:00 p.m. during the final day of the International Pedigree Stage Stop Sled Dog Race in Park City, Utah.
Host communities for the International Pedigree Stage Stop Sled Dog Race are eligible to send two students to represent their towns in this short exhibition fun run. In order to participate in the race, students agree to perform 10 hours of community service work prior to the race, and donate $25 to the nonprofit Uinta County Community Youth Coalition.
The Jr. Stage Stop program was launched in 1999 by International Stage Stop co-founder Jayne Ottman and Jackson Hole Musher Maria Hayashida to broaden the goals of the IPSSSDR, and to improve the status of youth in Wyoming communities statewide. The Jr. Stage Stop provides an opportunity for youth to increase their self-esteem, social competency, community involvement and to experience philanthropy. Students do not need their own dogs or previous mushing experience to participate—equipment and dog teams are provided by the IPSSSDR.
