Emotions in Motion on the Lakewalk this weekend

SAVE/Emotions in Motion 2016/Facebook

Every day, 105 Americans take their own lives, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

And while spending a beautiful summer morning enjoying a 5k run (or walk) with friends, family and others who "get" the pain of mental illness and/or the loss of a loved one may not make everything all right, it sure can't hurt.

More information about SAVE is available here; more information about Saturday's Emotions in Motion eventis here.

Lisa Johnson started her broadcast career anchoring the television news at her high school and spinning country music at KWWK/KOLM Radio in Rochester, Minnesota. She was a reporter and news anchor at KTHI in Fargo, ND (not to mention the host of a children's program called "Lisa's Lane") and a radio reporter and anchor in Moorhead, Bismarck, Wahpeton and Fergus Falls.Since 1991, she has hosted Northland Morning on KUMD. One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland. She goes to bed at 8pm, long before her daughter, two cats, or three dogs.
