Description

Have you been directly affected by suicide? - Have you felt the desire to make a difference?

The Annual Walk to Wendover is an event like no other. The Life's Worth Living Foundation has been making positive advances in Suicide Prevention in Tooele County since 2014. This 100 mile walk is our desire to raise awareness, and much needed funds to continue our prevention efforts . What began as a crazy idea has grown in popularity and our most loved event each year. Join other walkers as the trek across Tooele County for 2 days from Tooele City Hall to Wendover, Utah.

You may get sore legs and feet, blisters and sunburns, but you will learn that you can do hard things. Things that seem impossible to one can be conquered together. You will learn that pain is only for but a minute. You will see that eveyone has a story, but that we are the authors, and we determine how our story goes. You will learn that family isn't just blood. We are all people who love each other despite our flaws and imperfections. We are more interested in where we are going then where we have been. We will learn to treasure what makes us unique. We will learn from grandparents, parents, aunts, uncles, sisters and brothers. We will learn from those who walked it, even those who are brought into our path along the way. We will see beauty in diversity. We will see possibilities where others claim impossibility. We will find that with sharing comes healing. We will see that in lifting others we gain strength. We will learn that the road of life is long, and at times you can grow tired and want to give up. You will realize the the sense of accomplishment that comes from crossing the finish line. You will see that it's the relationships in this life that matter, that part of my story is written in your ink. You will be better from experience, wiser from what you will learn along the way and ready for the challenges that lie ahead. You will have walked 100 miles in the desert... You can do anything!
