Part of the mission of Forrest Goetsch Charities is to recognize organizations that are helping or have helped people through difficult times. With the events that took place in our community Forrest Goetsch Charities would like to recognize some of those that protect and serve in our community. Forrest Goetsch Charities will be donating at least 50% of all race participant fees from Forrest’s Run this year to the Everest Metro Police Department, Rothschild Police Department, as well as numerous area Fire Departments in our community.
