WOGO team member Dr Jan Kriska has been a part of WOGO from our very first mission trip to Nepal working as our Internist. Right now Jan is participating in the Montane Yukon Arctic Ultramarathon (http://www.arcticultra.de/en/ ) The Montane Yukon Arctic Ultra follows the Yukon Quest trail, the trail of the world’s toughest Sled Dog Race, running from Feb 4-12.
Dr Kriska is 183 miles into the 300 mile running event in the Yukon. He is currently about 8 miles in the lead. He started Thursday morning and has been running since with a couple short breaks.
You can follow him at the following web address: http://trackleaders.com/yukonultra16
He is number 327.
While Jan runs he hopes that his supporters will consider supporting WOGO with a donation at www.wogo.org/donate.
