Teaming up with former model turned musher, Zoya de Nure, Michaels will learn the ins and outs of what it takes to be a competitor. She will also be teaming up and utilizing the exposure of this event to raise monies for cancer research. She will be riding and raising money in honor of the 4 time Iditarod winner, Susan Butcher, who tragically lost her battle with Leukemia last year.
