Dog-Sled Ride Benefit Feb. 22 (posted 2/16/2020)
Benefit for Casting for Recovery
Musher Gwenn Bogart is again giving dog sled rides on Saturday, February 22 from 10AM to 3PM at Bomgaars (Bargerville south of Pinedale) to benefit "Casting for Recovery" in Wyoming.
Gwen is the co-founder of CFR. Over 20 years ago she had a vision that the sport of fly fishing can be therapeutic both physically and emotionally for women who have had breast cancer. Since then over ten thousand women have attended retreats across the country.
The Wyoming retreat this year is July 24-26 at The Absaroka Guest Ranch outside of Dubois. Women of "any age" at "any state" of treatment and recovery can apply for the no cost retreat, through a random drawing by May 15 at www.castingforrecovery.org.
Gwen will be giving rides with her dog team. Riders of all ages can warm up by the campfire with hot chocolate before and after their turn in the sled. A $10 donation is suggested. Come out for a fun, exciting ride and help an important organization, too.
