How It Works

SUBMIT THE NAMES OF YOUR LOVED ONES

Fill out our simple form and Gunnar will carry your loved ones’ names with him as he races with his sled dogs in the 2021 Iditarod.

Your loved one’s strength and your hope for greater suicide awareness will propel Gunnar and his dogs as they take on the treacherous Iditarod course.

At the conclusion of the race, Gunnar will ceremonially “burn” the names into the infinite Alaskan sky at a tranquil ceremony. The ashes spread at the confluence of the Knik and Matanuska Rivers where they will flow into the vast Artic Seas with the Spring melt.
