2018 Yukon Quest food dropLynden continued its tradition of donating transportation of food and supplies for the 2018 Yukon Quest 1,000-mile sled dog race this winter by participating in the annual Fairbanks Food Drop event in January. Alaska West Express Drivers Brian Ambrose and James Elliott picked up freight in Whitehorse to support the mushers and their dog teams. Lynden Transport is also an event sponsor. Canadian Lynden Transport Dispatcher Deanna Benson received a call from race organizer Alex Olesen one day. "He said his uncle was curious about how things were going with the shipment," Deanna says. "The uncle turned out to be Lynden retiree Steven Reilly. What a small world!" Image from the Yukon Quest video. View the video and the food drop process at https://youtu.be/t5ijcCWoTvk?t=45.
