A remote town in Alaska, Nome was suffered from a deadly Diphtheria Epidemic. This lethal epidemic easily takes a lives of 100 people at once. The only solution is to get cure from this disease as soon as possible.

In order to tackle the problem a group of dogsled drivers was chosen to transport the life-saving anti-toxin into the town from the nearby urban area, Nenana.

However, the city of Nenana was 1,085 kilometers far from the Alaska.

Talking about the weather of the the Alaskan, It was almost winter season with its harsh and extreme environment. This weather makes all forms of transportation nearly impossible.

Due to extreme weather with snow , it is very hard for the man for transportation. Luckily a group of dogs are taken to transport anti-epidemic drugs.

A team of dogsled drivers was taken to brace the winter and saved the Nome residents by risking their lives to bring the cure to the town.

As they had been rushing towards the time, the crew prepared to traverse the snowy terrain and cold temperature as they started their Nenana-Nome journey.

The freezing weather was not the only the challenge that the team faced. Apparently, the serum would only last for six days while the entire journey would take as minimum as 25 days. This is very challenging problems that the people of Alaska faced.

So the handiest manner for the team of dogsled drivers managed to maintain the serum in an ultimate circumstance for use as a cure become to supply it in much less than the commonly required time.

For that, they use Siberian Huskies which are known for their strong and resilient build as well as fine, highly twisted secondary hair that could keep them warm through the winter.

The adventure what is likewise referred to as as “The last wonderful Race” noticed the serum being competently delivered to the struggling human beings of Nome, preventing one of the deadliest epidemics ever came in the world.


To commemorate the huskies that saved tens of thousands of people, In 1926, the statue of Balto was made in Central Park in New York.The Balto that delivered the first serum to the town. This is made for the remembrance of all the dog that save ten thousand of Human lives.

These are not only the dogs but these Siberian Huskies were truly the real heroes for the people of the Alaska.
