Alaska’s “Last Great Race” – the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race – is on the verge of losing the support of both its competitors and sponsors and could collapse, a consultant to the Iditarod Trail Committee warned in a secret, December report to the board of directors.
“The board must understand the urgency to mend these relationships,” Dennis McMillian of The Foraker Group wrote in the document obtained by craigmedred.news. “Foraker senses that both of these partner groups are on the verge of withdrawing their support for this race as a result of their distrust in this board.”
The Foraker Group is an Alaska-based consultancy that advises non-profit organizations on good governance. The Iditarod operates as a federally recognized, non-profit charitable organizations.
