Walk to raise awareness about epilepsy

August 5, 2010 —

In a few weeks on Aug. 28, the Iowa Walk for Epilepsy will kick off at 8 a.m. at Merle Hay Mall. You should sign up, organize a team, donate or spread the word! DMU is a proud sponsor of the event and hopes it brings awareness to the struggle many people with epilepsy have. It’s FREE to walk. The idea is for you to collect donations &/or just participate to raise awareness!

If you’re not free that day & don’t have a dime to spare, at least take a moment to learn more about epilepsy.


Courtney Tompkins has been part of the DMU marketing team since Nov. 2005 and loves promoting a school she believes in so thoroughly. Proud daughter and patient of DMU alumni, Courtney knows, first-hand, that Des Moines University is doing a world of good. A fan of all outdoor festivals, fruity drinks and nearly all edibles, she has a hard time narrowing down her list of favorite places to go and things to do but lists the Iowa State Fair as an all-time fave. She loves her 8-minute commute to DMU from Urbandale, a suburb of Des Moines. She and husband Tyler are owned by three large dogs, Tonka, Tucker and Tank.

    I do appreciate the effort of organizing a rally to raise awareness among the masses about Epilepsy. I also congratulate DMU for being a part of this event. I hope this program will be able to resolve all the questions regarding epilepsy.
