2nd Annual Midtown Challenge: *POSTPONED UNTIL SPRING 2013*
*This Event has been postponed until the Spring of 2013. We are sorry for any inconvience this may cause. Check back soon for updates*
Join the University of Michigan Detroit Center and Semester in Detroit Program on Saturday, September 29 from 12 p.m. – 5 p.m. for the 2nd Annual Midtown Challenge. This team building exercise is open to the public (must at least high school age to participate) and offers participants an opportunity to immerse themselves in Detroit’s Art & Culture District of Midtown. A $5 registration fee covers round trip transportation from Ann Arbor (bus departs at 11 a.m. from the Michigan Union) to the U-M Detroit Center and lunch from Detroit’s famous Slows BBQ.
Once at the Detroit Center, you will begin a non-traditional walking tour of the cultural, historical, housing and business quarters of Midtown Detroit. Engaging clues and puzzles will lead participants on an entertaining adventure through the Midtown neighborhood. Along the way, you will visit museums, restaurants and historical buildings. Teams will be provided with all the resources needed to complete this adventure.
The ability of your team to think together as a group -- assessing skills and knowledge, making team decisions, and delegating the right challenge to the right person -- will be the key to your success.
The 2nd Annual Midtown Challenge is co-sponsored by the University of Michigan’s Semester in Detroit program.
To register, contact the Detroit Center: DetroitCenter@umich.edu or (313) 593-3584 by September 27. If you have previously participated in this event, please keep in mind that the challenge is unique to Midtown and the content does not change year to year.
