When you give to KYUK during our spring fundraiser you’re supporting student programming and services. This year when you give through Pick.Click.Give you can win $1,000 for yourself and the YK Delta nonprofit organization of your choice in the Give+Get Drawing sponsored by Bethel Community Services Foundation.

To be eligible for the drawing just file for your PFD and choose to give a portion of your PFD to KYUK or one of these other participating organizations: Bethel Family Clinic, Canine Comfort, Tundra Women’s Coalition, Yuut Elitnaurviat or Yuut Yaqungviat. The deadline is March 31st.

If you already filed it’s not too late to enter the drawing, just go back to the pfd site and click the green button labeled “Add or Change My Pick.Click.Give. Donation.”

Individual giving is a critical part of our sustainability and our mission. If you believe the service we provide is important to you and your community we hope you’ll consider giving an amount that’s right for you.

And good luck, for both our sakes.

The start of the 2015 Kuskokwim 300 Sled Dog Race and Bogus Creek 150 was notable this year as race officials asked race fans to keep their vehicles off the river because of concerns the combined weight could pose a danger on the thin river ice.  Soon after the start racers endured rain most of their trip up to the Bogus Creek checkpoint.
