ABOUT THE FILM

Shortly before Mary Helwig signed up to fulfill her dream of running the 2016 Iditarod, a 1,000-mile-long sled dog race across Alaska, she lost nearly everything she owned to the Sockeye Fire. The award-winning film Everything It Takes documents the year of Mary’s life leading up to race day as she and her dogs rebuild their lives while struggling to prepare for the challenge of a lifetime.
