Mini mushers event cancelled

The fourth annual Mini Musher Sled Dog Challenge scheduled for Saturday, March 19 has been cancelled. Director and co-founder Trisha Kolegar sustained severe leg injuries in a snowmachining accident and won't be able to organize the event.

The sled dog challenge raises money for special-needs children. It is hosted by the Chugiak Dog Mushers Association with help from the city parks and recreation department. Volunteers provide dog teams and rides, allowing kids to work with the dogs. Organizers say they plan to hold two Autism Alaska events next season.
