Press release to follow stay tuned for more details.
Driver/Musher Lacy Kuehl will be on Team Petit with Musher Nicolas Petit
Lacy Kuehl, 16, is an eleventh-grader from Sarasota, Florida. During the summer of 2022, Lacy came to Alaska to race at the Alaska Raceway. After a rained-out event, she went dryland mushing with Nic Petit and was hooked! He offered her a team for the 2023 Jr. Iditarod, and after some thought, she said yes. Although she has never experienced weather colder than 30°F, she's excited for a new challenge in life. No matter what kind or race, be it a car or dog sled, Lacy runs to spread awareness for diabetes. Her family founded Drive for Diabetes Awareness. Though still new to the sport, Lacy hopes to continue running sled dogs after high school.
Pay attention: It is estimated that 537 million people are currently living with diabetes all over the world. By 2045, projections show this number rising to some 783 million diabetics globally.
