Welcome to my web site! My name is Rachael Scdoris and I am a professional sled dog racer from Bend, Oregon.
I was born with Congenital Achromatopsia, a rare vision disorder causing near sightedness, far sightedness and colorblindness. My dream was always to compete in the Iditarod-the world famous 1,200 mile annual race from Anchorage to Nome, Alaska. As a young girl, I made the decision not to allow my visual impairment to stand in the way of my dream, and I have been racing sled dogs since I was 11 years old. I have experienced some unbelievable challenges and opportunities during my career and am grateful for both the highs and lows. I hope my story can help encourage others to pursue their dreams.
See you on the trail!
