Fond du Lac, Wis. (WFRV) - It's called the "Can't Depend on Snow" sled-dog race for a reason.
The 9-th annual event was held Saturday in Fond du Lac.
Participants used a wheeled rig, so no snow is needed.
All of the money raised from the race goes toward the "Make a Wish" foundation.
It's an organization near and dear to Jeanna Giese's heart.
She raced today, but back when she was 15, she became the first person to ever survive rabies without a vaccination.
"Today went pretty good," she says." It was my first race, I was really excited. This is an awesome event for make a wish. I was able to come out here and contribute to the fundraiser."
Giese hopes more people will get involved with sled-dog racing.
Participants today came from all across the mid-west.
