Don’t forget to RSVP soon for the great DMU Run-Day-Voo!

The fun begins at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, August 14, in front of the Academic Center. It’s only $20 (which includes a tee) if you register online or $30 at the door.

Not only will you be rubbing elbows with fellow students, staff & grads, it’s a great lil tour through our beautiful neighborhood. And it’s no cakewalk, the route is hilly and challenging so those of you fitness buffs will get a nice sweat. Those who choose to walk it will feel satisfied too!

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.

    The third annual Run-Day-Voo organized by DMU is a very special event to participate. It is special because it is a 5K run or walk whichever you feel comfortable. The thing that you gain is the experience of a beautiful tour around Des Moines.
