Richmond Hill Rotary presents - The Yukon Quest dog sled race

Event Date: 
Monday, May 17, 2021 - 6:30pm

All are welcome to this Richmond Hill Rotary meeting. They've got a very interesting talk they believe many would like to hear.

The Yukon Quest is a gruelling 1,000 miles/1,600 km dog sled race through the wilderness between Whitehorse, Yukon and Fairbanks, Alaska.   Join the Rotary Club of Richmond Hill’s Zoom meeting to hear Hank DeBruin and Tanya McCready from Winterdance Dogsled Tours tell their story.

Hank and their huskies have had many adventures from Maine to Alaska including competing in six 1000-mile races in Alaska and the Yukon. Out of the many lessons and countless stories from these races, a corporate presentation was born that focuses on building and leading great teams through challenging times.

Winterdance has been around for 21 years now. What started as a dream, turned into a family business and a lifestyle around their beloved Siberian huskies, and now welcomes around 2000 guests from around the globe every winter.

Hank and Tanya also have a 2500 tree maple syrup farm and have co-written 2 books. Their latest book, Journey of 1000 Miles, released just last Christmas has become an international best seller.
