TEDxPortland – Paint the Town TEDx Night 6k
April 11, 2017
TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.”
The TEDx Fun Run/Walk, “Paint The Town TED,” will feature a unique partnership between OMSI and TEDx, and create excitement and hype leading up to the main event later that week. So, jump off the couch and join us for the 3rd annual TEDxPortland 6K Night Run! Participants will enjoy a non-competitive experience that is family friendly around the Portland Waterfront.
TEDxPortland started in 2011, and will celebrate its 7th annual event on April 15th. As its own 501(c)3 non-profit organization, TEDxPortland supports its core value of “ideas worth spreading” throughout the Portland area.
