Currently, Carbon and Emery counties are reeling from a large number of deaths attributed to suicide. The trend has been on an upward spiral for quite some time. Community members and several agencies are working hard to find solutions to this problem.
A hope walk, run bike event and block party will take place in the Fresh Market parking lot on September 6 to bring awareness to this issue and help the community become involved. Free pizza and hot dogs will be served.
This event is being conducted by the Carbon/Emery Hope Squad and will kick off National Suicide Prevention Week.
