Iditarod Musher J. Holmes hurt while Volunteering

Donation protected
Iditarod dog musher Jessie Holmes was in an accident today in Golovin, Alaska. Jessie was volunteering in the village after severe flooding from Typhoon Merbok with other volunteer Iditarod Dog mushers Brent Sass, Jeff Deeter and Richie Beattie. One of Jessie’s wrists is broken, his other arm is also injured, he has broken ribs and some internal injuries. He was sent on an emergency medical flight, otherwise known as a medevac, from Golovin to the region’s hospital in Nome. After further evaluation in Nome the doctors there determined he needed to be medevaced again, this time to Anchorage where he will go straight into surgery. Jessie currently does not have health insurance; the people of Golovin want to help alleviate Jessie’s financial burden he will face by crowd funding. Quyana (Thank you)!
