Team Evergreen is a sled dog kennel located in the heart of the UP in Marquette County. I have a 24-dog team that is currently working towards the goal of Iditarod in 2017. As you can imagine, there is a lot of time, effort, and money required to accomplish this dream. That is why I need you. I am currently seeking a volunteer to help me with fundraising efforts as well as promotion of sled dog rides this coming winter. This role would involve helping identify target markets to pursue individual and business sponsorships as well as different enthusiasts to book group and individual sled dog rides for the 2015-2016 winter season. The goal is to brainstorm ideas to help promote our campaign to those target markets. We have photography/videography/graphic skills within our team to help create marketing and promotion material. So, someone with enthusiasm and passion for marketing (and dogs too) is needed to help us get the job done! We are looking to begin promotion mid to late October. If you’d like to know more about sled dogs and be apart of an Iditarod team, please email Liza at for more information.
