Alaska Iditarod Adventure 2025

Spring Break is a great chance to get away and experience something new! Join us in the breathtaking scenery of Alaska for an opportunity to grow closer to God, make extraordinary friendships, serve those around you, and make unforgettable memories.

During the trip, you will participate in a series of different volunteer activities. You’ll set up the site for the Willow Start of the Iditarod Race. Some volunteers will be trail guards, others will oversee parking security, and some will be trained to be dog handlers. All volunteers help to tear down and clean up after the race. You will be working alongside other race volunteers, mushers, and musher friends and families. It’s an amazing opportunity to share your faith.

An Unforgettable Experience that Gives Back to the Community

After the Iditarod Race, you'll have the opportunity to serve the homeless, work with kids at the Boy's and Girls Club and local city parks, serve senior adults, painting and helping at the homeless shelter.

When we're not giving back to the beautiful Alaskan community, there are endless opportunities for exciting activities like snow hiking in the forest, moose viewing, sledding and we actually get to mush sled dogs.

How We’ll Spend the Week

Serve

Serve the homeless, work with kids at the Boys & Girls Club, kids in parks, serve in senior living homes, painting and handyman projects. All done in the name of Jesus.

Volunteer

On Saturday, you will help set up the Iditarod Start fencing in Willow, Alaska. On Sunday, you'll serve as credentialed volunteers putting on the Race Start. Afterwards, tearing down the fencing and loading it all back into the Iditarod truck. During the day, we encourage informal spiritual conversations with others.

Play

We will have the opportunity to play, sled and hike in the snow. You'll also have time to go looking for moose! Missionaries looking for moose are called Moosinaries. Most years we are able to go to Wasilla and actually get to mush (drive) a dog team around a frozen lake.

Dates, Price and What’s Included

Our price covers everything except airfare - including housing, all meals, transportation, staff hosting, and airport transfers. The recommended donation that covers our costs is $750/pp. This is our most popular project of the year and fills up quickly. We can only confirm with you once we receive your application and $50 deposit.

Note: The Iditarod Volunteering portion of this mission is very physically challenging. Please only sign up if you are in good health. Housing requires climbing stairs.

Note: There's always a possibility of the race moving to Fairbanks instead of Willow due to the lack of snow. If this happens, the schedule above will change, and we will spend a day going to Fairbanks and returning, and it will be much colder!

Testimony

My first Iditarod mission trip was 2014. It impacted me to my soul. I knew after the first Iditarod; God was going to use me for His work. I could never have imagined how far He would have used me. He still leads me every year knowing I have a bigger purpose for His work. I’m just a guy from the south that loves the outdoors. Add a lot of snow and God’s beautiful country, well this is the perfect mission trip. I tell folks all the time that on the Iditarod trip, you will work long and hard. You must be very intentional when it comes to sharing the Gospel, but I promise you will be just as blessed if you believe and follow that example. GraceWorks does an amazing job handling and supporting all the teams that come and serve. This is a great opportunity to shine for God’s glory. I thank you GraceWorks for the impact this has not only made in my life, but also in many others.
