Susan Butcher, four time winner of the Iditarod Dog Sled Race, died Saturday at age 51 from leukemia. Susan may have been born in Massachusetts but her heart was in Alaska. She put great spirit into everything she did and was one of the people who made the Iditarod race popular for schoolchildren (and their teachers) everywhere. She was a person of great character and will be missed.
