Notes:A few years ago Dusty Olson got Lymes during one of his many endurance excursions through the woods. The treatment he received was inadequate and he continued to have problems on and off for the past few years. Recently he was able to get in to see a specialist out of the Duluth area who diagnosed him with lyme arthritis, mononeuritis multiplex, lyme encephalopathy, and babesiosis which all require a lot of medications that are costly. Dusty does not have health insurance and needs the medications to finally recover from the various illnesses he is inflicted with. He has already spent thousands out of his own pocket to pay for expenses and is anticipated to have many more over the coming year or more.

All donations from this event will be put into a Walgreen's fund for Dusty's prescriptions.  The race starts at the warming shack.  Registration takes place event morning only starting at 8:30am. Please contact the race director by September 25th if you will need a canoe. If you cannot make the event and would still like to contribute please do!
