GOAL FOUNDATION YOUTH PROGRAMS
The GOAL Foundation is proud to “give back” to the Greater Ogden community through our Youth Programs. We offer a variety of activities that our youth can participate in. Listed are programs we currently offer:
GOAL’S YOUNG RUNNERS PROGRAM: Our year round program teaches school aged children fun running activities and proper nutrition principals throughout the school year, culminating with a celebration and free entry into our Ogden Marathon Kids K or 5 K. We create games that keep kids constantly moving while having fun, and encouraging active lifestyles while developing a positive attitude towards exercise. Included is a nutritional component encouraging our children to make healthy food choices.
The Current program operates in conjunction with Ogden and Weber School Districts’ after-school programs serving around 600 students, which includes 8 YMCA and 2 Boys and Girls clubs. The population in the after-school programs is primarily lower income population of inner-city Ogden.
