Patrick Hoopes, a Taylorsville 3-year-old who is waiting for an intestinal transplant, on Wednesday ceremonially started the fountain at Salt Lake City's Celebration of Life Monument.
The monument honors Utahns living and deceased who have donated organs. Located on the southeast corner of Library Square at 500 South and 300 East, it includes a wall engraved with donors' names.
On Wednesday, Intermountain Donor Services gathered the families of donors and those waiting for organs to discuss the importance and impact of donating. The group then walked to the fountain to start it for the season and to remember past donors.
