Eleven teams, eleven hidden locations, eleven challenges… ONE… EPIC…RACE! This year’s amazing dental race brought out 11 teams of D1 students to help them get to know some iconic locations around Milwaukee and Marquette’s campus as well as to get to know each other more. Along the way, teams faced fun challenges like blindfolded pictionary outside the Milwaukee Art Museum, karaoke outside the Riverside Theatre, gym selfies at the Marquette Rec center, and an oyster cracker shootout at Real Chili. Teams made their way through all these challenges while dressed to their team’s theme, which was an added challenge to win “Best Team Theme”. While all teams dressed to impress, some of the noteworthy themes were the Scooby Doo gang, the Taco Belles, the Party Enamels, and the MaMelons. In the end it was the Taco Belles who took home the prize for best dressed! After solving the eleven mystery location riddles and completing eleven challenges, the first team to reach our finish line location at Caffrey’s won the grand prize. All were winners in the end with free beer and pizza, but the team this year to take home the title and bragging rights was Dirty Mike and the Boys! Congrats guys! And a special shout out to the Events team, Jesus Echezarreta, Taylor McElwee, Melanie Ladley, Nathan Tran, and Jack Orzepowski, for putting together literally an AMAZING event! Look out for their next social event, Stache Bash on November 30th!
