Thanks to each of you for participating in the first ever Friends – Utah, Steps for Change event.

With supporters like you, Friends-Utah has been able to grow despite the challenges faced by so many in our communities over the past year. Thank you for believing in us and making an impact in the lives of the youth and family we serve.
But enough talk, let’s see results!

A special thanks to our SPONSORS: Intermountain Healthcare, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Utah, Select Health, and SCHEELS for making this event truly spectacular.
