Fairbanksans launch ‘Tractor Trip for Kids’ to benefit medical research | Kris Capps


Longtime Fairbanks residents Dick and Carolee Ourada are taking the long, slow, scenic route back to Alaska from Nebraska and helping a good cause along the way.

The couple bought a 1977 IHC 574 tractor online to use at their new property in Pleasant Valley on Chena Hot Springs Road. After an illness and Covid-19 delayed delivery of the tractor for quite some time, they decided to bring it north themselves. Along the way, they are raising money for the Colorado Children’s Hospital, which saved the life of Dick’s daughter in 1964.
