Riverton Hope Walk brings awareness to suicide, offers community support
RIVERTON, Utah — Dozens of people gathered Saturday for the Riverton Hope Walk — an annual event to show those who may be having suicidal thoughts that they have an entire community standing behind them.
The walk started at 9 a.m. at Riverton High School.
Organizers of the event said “they walk to give others hope” and to show people that there is help available to them.
“And it’s OK to maybe not have all the answers and to ask for help, for resources, because there’s are a lot of people and a lot of organizations that are willing to give help and wanting to help people who are struggling with suicidal ideation or mental health in general,” said Natalie Bartholomew.
