Created and organized by employees of the Alaska State Troopers on a volunteer basis, the relay includes the community AST serves – the State of Alaska – and benefits this Alaskan charity.

Through participation, pledges and fundraising, ASTAR was able to raise more than $37,000 for WUNS in the past two years. The relay captures the spirit of determination to face the challenges on the trail, symbolizing the far greater challenges for those the event will benefit.
