Press Release – June 2018 Update Atka Kennel

CBC News

I want to personally thank Outdoor Survival Canada for supporting Atka Kennel and myself.  This past season during the Yukon Quest 1000 mile dog sled race,  I faced a life and death situation and I can truly tell you that OSC’s Mission parka and Klin bib pant played a major  role in saving my life.  Blacking out and being unconscious for over an hour in frigid -50 temperatures, the first responder  Paramedics who rescued me said that they believe the Parka is what saved me from hypothermia.

Since the accident I have been working diligently with medical specialists to ensure my full recovery.  It has not been an easy road, however we are optimistic that in due time,  I will be able to get behind the sled again with my team of star athletes (my dogs), who are the true heroes  in my eyes.
