A special visit

Lucus with parents Chuck and BethVolunteer producer Lucus Keppel had two very special guests last month: his parents Chuck and Beth.

The three were reunited during a unique time of year for Nome: the running of the Iditarod sled dog race. Amid all of the busyness of Lucus helping to cover the race, he and his family had the opportunity to witness a few mushers crossing the finish line and to take in the bustling atmosphere of Western Alaska during “race season.”

We’re constantly reminded of the many friends and family members whose support, in so many ways, continues to make our mission possible.
