Volume X Issue V THE OGDEN VALLEY NEWS Page 5 June 15, 2004 Walk/Bike-A-Thon to Be Held in Liberty St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has announced that the Ogden Valley “Wheels For Life” Walk/Bike-A-Thon will be held June 26 at 10:00 a.m. at the new LDS church located at 3300 E. in Liberty. The coordinator for this year’s event is Jennifer Johnson who is encouraging all residents and businesses to support this community effort. “This is a great opportunity for kids to help other kids.” Sponsor forms are now available at the Valley Market and at Maverik station. The increase in the overall survival rate of children with cancer from 30% to 70% has been made possible through research. The funds from events like the Valley Walk/Bike-A-Thon make that research possible. By participating in this event, residents of Ogden Valley can work hand in hand with researchers, technicians, and doctors at St. Jude Children’s Research hospital to provide treatments and cures for children of catastrophic diseases. Due to the overwhelming importance of the research conducted at the hospital, St. Jude freely shares its new treatments and research findings with doctors and hospitals around the world, including those located within the state of Utah. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is located in Memphis, Tennessee, and was founded by the late entertainer Danny Thomas. The hospital is an internationally recognized biomedical research center dedicated to finding cures for catastrophic diseases of childhood. The hospital’s work is supported through funds raised by the American Lebanese Syrian Associated Charities (ALSAC). ALSAC covers all costs not covered by insurance for medical treatment rendered at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

According to Fessler, “With the enormous popularity of the TV program American Idol, we felt there was an opportunity to implement a similar competition for Ogden Valley kids, since there’s so much talent right out our back door. Any Valley resident aged 8 – 16 is invited to submit a sample of their work to be considered for a competition to be held in mid-August.” The winners of both competitions will be awarded with a full year family membership to the Wolf Creek Recreation Facility, which features a large outdoor pool, hot tub, tennis courts, volleyball, fitness center, and racquetball courts. The memberships are valued at over $500. Prizes will also be awarded to the top five candidates in both categories. The Valley Idol singer will be featured during the opening ceremony on the afternoon of August 27, and event organizers have a very special celebration in mind. Therefore, a good command of God Bless America is required. Applications will be available online for both competitions at www.ogdenvalleyballoonfestival.com or can be picked up at 3718 N. Wolf Creek Drive. A demo cassette or CD should be dropped off by August 1. Visual artists will also be judged in August, and should consider submitting, by August 1, a photograph of any type of artwork that best represents the balloon festival. Any medium can be used, from watercolor or oil paintings, photography, sculptures, works in clay or even paper Mache. The winning artwork will be prominently displayed at the Festival. Ogden Valley vendors and entertainers can call 745-3435 to obtain a vendor packet. Event organizers are also seeking volunteers for all aspects of event planning. Anyone interested should contact Volunteer Coordinator Katie Anderson at 690-8308. DON'T FORGET TO VOTE!

Four week summer and school year programs available What a great way to share cultures! The Foreign Exchange program was initiated by the U.S. State Department to facilitate cultural awareness and understanding—ultimately to lead to a more peaceful world. Wouldn’t it be great to participate in this important program while creating a new friend from another part of the world? Students come with their own insurance, pocket money, and merely require a separate bed (not a separate bedroom). You would provide their food and a place to sleep. They become a member of your family, doing chores, going to local events and other activities with you. After they part, they continue communication with you—their new family far from home. Non-profit exchange placement organizations, such as Nacel Open Door, place students in host homes and monitor them to assure success. A brief application starts the process; soon you will be welcoming your own exchange student at the airport! Students coming this summer: June 29 – July 25; and July 11 – August 8. We have students from Germany, France, and possibly Spain coming for this short stay. Students coming this fall: Starts in Mid-August and continues through Mid June. They will be attending St. Joseph’s Catholic High School and other private schools. Among the new students SJCHS is welcoming: Hanna from Ukraine; and Min Soo and Gee Hye from South Korea—there may very well be more!
