The GOAL Foundation has been positively impacting the lives of local elementary school-aged children through their Young Runners Program for over 10 years. The program provides running activities and games, with the goal being simple: To encourage kids to lead healthy and active lifestyles outdoors. They accomplish this through their partnership with the YMCA and Boys & Girls Club afterschool programs. The program is funded by personal donations and proceeds from the Ogden Marathon.
The GOAL Foundation further expanded their reach in 2020 by partnering with the Ogden Weber Community Action Project (OWCAP), Golden Hours Senior Center, YCC Family Crisis Center, Catholic Community Services (CCS), and the Lantern House to distribute the 500 pairs of shoes to children, families, and seniors in the community.
