We met with Jenny Scothern the Executive Director, Clairesse Miljour the Operations Manager, Abby Monroe the Office & Event Services Manager, and Sara Mejeur – Marketing & Communications Manager. GOAL Foundation was found in 2002, after the winter Olympics. This will be our 18th Ogden Marathon. Their mission is to inspire the Greater Ogden Community and its visitors to "Get Out And Live!" by participating, volunteering and spectating at recreational events, programs and activities. They envision a Greater Ogden community that thrives economically and is healthier in mind, body and spirit. Their Young Runners Program is up and running in 15 after school programs and with the help of our amazing donors we have provided nearly 300 pairs of shoes to 5 schools this year. We love our volunteers! We actually utilize around 1,700 volunteers per year.
We met with Lynne Goodwin the Executive Director there. Treehouse Children’s Museum opened its doors in 1992 and has been providing unique educational exhibits and programs to more than 175,000 visitors each year. Originally, the Museum was located in the Ogden City Mall, then on 23rd Street while it’s permanent home, the signature Treehouse building on 22nd Street, was being built. The Elizabeth Stewart Treehouse Museum building opened its doors in 2006. At the center of the Museum is the amazing, 30-foot tall tree, built by Treehouse staff.
