"WHAT IF WE ACTUALLY WORKED AROUND THE CLOCK, FOR CHARITY?"

This was asked during a conversation between Teresa Coles and Cathy Monetti in the summer of 1998. As principals of Riggs Partners, an advertising agency in Columbia, South Carolina, the pair put plans in motion to make their idea of pulling an all-nighter for charity a reality. Soon after, CreateAthon was born.

WHY BRING THIS TO OREGON?

At the University of Oregon we wanted to bring together our student population and surrounding community. We also wanted to provide the opportunity for everyone to give back and support our nonprofits, as well as network and create with one another.

WHO STARTED CREATEATHON OREGON?

Createathon Oregon started with Kaheawai Kaonohi, a student studying Advertising who had an ambition to host an event that brought students from multiple disciplines together as well as the surrounding Eugene community. In Spring 2019 the UO Innovation & Entrepreneurship Club took it on as its primary initiative and has only grown from there on out.
