EMC Insurance Companies Named Title Sponsor of DAM to DSM3/15/2019
EMC Insurance Companies is the title sponsor of DAM to DSM, which replaces Dam to Dam, the popular race that ended with its 39th annual event in 2018. DAM to DSM will continue the tradition of running 20 kilometers from the Saylorville Dam to downtown Des Moines on the first Saturday following Memorial Day.
“EMC wants to help this running tradition continue in an exciting, meaningful way,” Executive Vice President – Finance & Strategy Scott Jean said. “We look forward to seeing how this event continues to inspire and engage our community.”
The event, produced by Des Moines-based RipRoar Events, is expected to attract a large following of runners from around the state in its inaugural year.
“EMC’s commitment to this event will ensure that future generations of athletes have a chance to take part in this one-of-a-kind event,” DAM to DSM Race Director Michael Zimmerman said. “EMC is an integral part of our community, and we’re proud to have them as the title sponsor of DAM to DSM.”
Zimmerman says the main priority of the event is to celebrate all participants: the die-hards, the first-timers and the weekend warriors.
