It’s an extreme race!!!

August 10, 2010 —

If you’re looking for a fun afternoon out & about in Des Moines, check out the eXtreme race Aug. 27 @ 1. (I know many of you new students will be enjoying family weekend so plan to do this another year!)

You can sign up as a team of 4 for the DMU student rate of $150. You’ll head all over town, ala the popular reality show, ‘cept via Des Moines public transit. It sounds really fun & you could win cash, plus you get to enjoy our cool city!

Sign up here and mark that you are employed by a downtown chamber member and list Des Moines University as the employer for the special student rate.

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.
