Soccer, Walk to End Alzheimer’s, and TEDxRedmond 2011

soccer image Tomorrow is a big day. First, my son will be having his first soccer game of the season with his brand new team. Go Eagles!
   
At the same time, I’ll be walking with my daughter in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s. (If you’re so inclined, there’s still time to support me here!) We’re honored and excited to be a part of Team Teri Atteberry and looking forward to an inspirational morning in the late summer sun.

But imagine my surprise and delight when I learned about TEDxRedmond–a TEDx event organized by youth, for youth–right in my backyard! How had I not heard about this before? I don’t know, but I can’t wait to attend this year.

From their web page:

After speaking at the annual TED conference in Long Beach, CA, in 2010, 12-year-old teacher, speaker, and author Adora Svitak wanted to bring a TED-like experience home to Redmond, WA.

And she’s done it! I’m thrilled to be one of the supporters of this year’s TEDxRedmond, and I’m looking forward to meeting this young dynamo. Check out her TED speech:



Here’s a list of all the speakers joining Adora at TEDxRedmond 2011. I can’t wait to hear what these young people have to say!

Finally, the whole family is meeting up with friends, including one visiting from afar for the first time in years, for dinner. It’s hard to imagine a fuller, or more rewarding, day. I just hope I have some energy left to tell you about it afterwards!
