Sherry Smith & April Reilly

Sherry and April earned their title as early pioneers for the Iron Dog. Without the dedication and volunteer commitment, the race would have met an early end. Sherry and April combined their spirits, to raised funds. The girls were a welcome site to racers along the trail, and developed a Bush Telegraph System.

The girls will long be remembered for their warm welcome in Nome, keeping the headquarter lights on, until every racer reached the finish. “The Trinket and Trash Girls” will forever be considered the heart and soul of the race.
