Leroy Shank

Yukon Quest

One of the founders of the Yukon Quest International Sled Dog race has died. 79-year old LeRoy Shank had suffered from Parkinson’s disease and passed away over the weekend in Fairbanks. As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, Shank saw a dream come true this past winter when his granddaughter completed the thousand mile race he helped start.
