Downtown Amazing Race connects students to local businesses

August 28, 2017 | 1:37 PM

MacMurray College hosted its second annual Downtown Amazing Race on Saturday, Aug. 26, a fun-filled event to help familiarize new students with Downtown Jacksonville.

Students were divided into groups and raced from business to business around the downtown square. At each location, the students were presented with a challenge they had to complete before they could move on to the next business. The group that completed all the tasks the quickest won a prize.

The college would like to thank all the businesses that contributed and made the event possible: Bill Wade Photography, Frozen Penguin, Hair On The Square, Illinois Theatre, Inner Harmony, JR’s Barber Shop, Just Good Trade, Our Town Books, Taylor Mercantile, Times Square Sewing and Trone Appliances.
