"In 1925, a doctor in Nome, Alaska, sent out an urgent telegram. There was a deadly outbreak of diptheria in his town, and he needed medicine right away. The fastest way to get the medicine to him was by dog sled, and 20 mushers with 150 dogs answered the call. They raced against time, dashing over 600 miles in less than six days. This historic event is honored today by the Iditarod race. But was there more behind the 1925 run? The medicine was delivered, but Cahills believe there was a secret package passed along as well."
