Florida teen Driver / Musher LACY KUEHL races sled dogs in Alaska to help fight diabetes

Sarasota. Fl 3/29/2023

FOX Weather's Nick Kosir did a one-on-one interview with Lacy Kuehl, the youngest Floridian to ever participate in the Junior Iditarod Sled Dog Race. She did it all in honor of her brother, who died of diabetes. She breaks down going from race car driving in hot Florida to learning how to deal with cold weather in Alaska to race dogs.

Lacy was asked, Who is your hero?

"Rocco is my Hero. Rocco is why I race to warn others

of the symptoms and signs of diabetes, so no other parent or child has to lose their life." Says Lacy.

Huge thanks to all that supported Lacy's journey.
