I am stoked to be sharing this with you all! And even more thrilled to be working on a project that will not only benefit racers , but all the rescues that have and will be lucky enough to find Randy and Carol Mackenzie. There are a few parts to this project and the first part is being released today! ...
Join me in supporting Fort McMurray's own Canadian Challenge 2015 Athletes, Randy Mackenzie and his amazing Sled Dog Team. Official Race Day starts on February 24, 2015 and we have until then to do what we can to help Randy complete his goal.
Check out this link to explore a sneak peek into my series "Seasons": Canadian Challenge 2015 Fundraiser. The images you will see are available in 2 sizes of canvas and 12 of them have been included with this year's calendar. (The front and back page of the calendar images shown and not available in canvas.) By purchasing a "Seasons 2015" Calendar and/or your choice of a Fine Art Canvas you will be helping to raise funds for Randy and his team's incredible journey.
Each image has been selected from a collection of works Randy and I completed in 2014 for the series "Seasons". I have never felt so privileged to work with such amazing animals such as Lyra, Talon, Koyuk & Sage. Randy, I cannot thank you enough for the opportunity to experience this special part of your life. I hope you all enjoy these images as much as I did capturing them.
R. Mackenzie Rescue and Racing has a mission: "To effect positive change through rescue and rehabilitation." Randy has become an advocate for many animals and as his biography states he has a calling: "...to be a voice for sled dogs including the desperate need for sled dog rescue. In rescuing and rehabilitating sled dogs, Randy has found that not only would he be giving these dogs a second chance, but a chance of a lifetime by racing in the world class Canadian Challenge 2015. Randy plans on having almost half of his team of athletes be rescue dogs."
Best of luck, Randy! We are behind you all the way!
