Runkel Named Interim Deputy Executive Director for OLF

Mary Runkel has been named Interim Deputy Executive Director for the Outdoor Lab Foundation following the departure of current Executive Director, Paige Brophy.

Serving as Marketing and Development Associate and then Marketing and Community Relations Manager since April 2019, Mary has a strong nonprofit background as well as a Masters Degree in Public Administration from the University of Colorado. She’s looking forward to serving in this critical role. Read more about Mary on our About Us page.

“I’m grateful for the opportunity to support OLF at this time of transition and look forward to working within the community to continue our mission without skipping a beat. I believe OLF’s mission is more critical now than ever and I look forward to continuing the great work that Paige and the other OLF staff has initiated.”

Outdoor Lab Foundation board and staff urge the community to keep the Foundation’s momentum going by signing up for their 7th annual “not-so-traditional” fundraiser, called After Dark: Back to Our Roots on October 9, 2020. With full COVID precautions in mind, the Foundation’s goal is to raise over $90,000 for this rite-of-passage in the Jeffco Community.

Tickets to the event are on sale now. Virtual tickets, in-person tickets, and a preview of silent auction items are available online.
