Beargrease Gets Cash Infusion
Two big announcements came on Thursday from organizers of the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon.
At a press conference at the Black Bear Casino, representatives told the media that the casino had signed on as a major sponsor, donating $50,000.
The donation is a huge cash infusion for the race, which was canceled at one point before a leadership change just a month ago.
It will now be known at the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon presented by Black Bear Casino.
Also being announced was a total prize purse of $35,000 including $25K for the full marathon race and $10K for the mid-distance races.
