Riders from throughout the state participated in a Harley-Davidson ride on Saturday that will benefit the Angel of Hope Statue in Carbon/Emery County.
Riders traveled from Timpanogos Harley-Davidson to the Carbon County Fairgrounds. Community members had the opportunity to cheer on and support the nearly 100 Harley-Davidson riders as they rode into Carbon Country around 1 p.m. that day.
“Thank you to all of the people that supported our events during Warrior Days,” shared the committee behind the Angel of Hope statue. “We haven’t raised all of the funds needed, but we are getting closer.”
The Angel of Hope statue is for every parent who has lost a child of any age. Now, an effort is being spearheaded to bring such a statue to Carbon County. The statue will provide a place of comfort, healing and also a way of remembering each child so they are never forgotten.
