Battle Dawgs Racing Veteran Support

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2015


Battle Dawgs Racing is a professional sled dog racing kennel based in Big Lake, Alaska. They are also extremely supportive of the Veteran community, as you can see in their new campaign for this year’s Iditarod: #stop22. Recognizing that 22 Veterans a day end their own life in the USA, Battle Dawgs Racing will be wearing Wild Things Tactical jackets adorned with the Stop22 logo. Team members will sport the patches unit and combat style and will also display two flags also adorned with the Stop22 logo. These MultiCam ponchos also happen to be lined with wolf fur. Through the use of the MultiCam jackets, and patches, their goal is to raise awareness for Veterans during the Iditarod sled race, an event which will be viewed by millions of fans, insuring a high level of coverage.

Additionally, the non-profit side of Battle Dawgs is bringing two Veterans up for a retreat trip. Both currently suffer from PTSD, having served in the Army with multiple deployments. They will witness the start of the Iditarod in Anchorage and Fairbanks then travel to Nome to witness the finish. During the week of the race, they’ll both be treated to snowmobiling trips, sled dog mushing, ice fishing, skiing, snowboarding, all to enjoy the beauty of the Alaskan outdoors. They’ll also be involved in the making of their own personal custom-built knife, and will enjoy additional activities in Nome.
