Hunting Dakota with Roosevelt is a philanthopic celebrity hunting event. Teddy Roosevelt’s great-grandson Tweed Roosevelt goes along on the hunt. Other celebrities include Ted McKnight, former National Football League running back.
As a partner, the North Dakota National Guard does logistics for the hunt and weekend. Wounded warriors are included in the hunting teams, free of charge.
The money raised from hunters and sponsors goes to Bismarck Cancer Center, earmarked for cancer patient and cancer patient family support. This year the event raised about $150,000. Other sponsors give items like gift cards for the families affected by cancer, and the total support amounts to about $250,000.
