Created: 02/05/2014 8:47 AM WDIO.com

Kathleen Wolleat and Brent Wetzel from Northwood Children's Services came on Good Morning Northland Wednesday to give us a preview of their 2nd Annual Art Sled Rally!

Northwood Children's Services just celebrated their 130th anniversary in 2013. "We provide mental health services for children and youth," Kathleen tells us. She says that NCS has 6 group homes that they operate, along with all of the other services that they provide.

And Brent tells us that fundraising is very important to their mission. "We do activities through the year that involve the community," he says, and this event, the Art Sled Rally, is coming up on Saturday.

Groups can bring their decorated sleds and begin to register at 11:00 AM at the Ridgeview Country Club, located at 714 West Redwing Street in Duluth. Races begin at 1:00 PM. And the awards ceremony is at about 3:00 PM!
