Plans are nearly complete for the Emotions in Motion 5K run/walk on Saturday, August 23 in Sturges Park. The event is a fundraiser for Suicide Awareness Voice of Education, a national organization that provides support for several groups that are part of the Wright Mental Health coalition. Above are, from left, Sara Hansen, Aneisa Marschel, and Jeanne Lewandoski. The 5K organizers are standing behind a bench in Sturges Park that honors Lewandoski’s son who committed suicide.

Jeanne Lewandoski shows the shirt that volunteers will be wearing at the 5K run/walk at Sturges Park on Saturday, August 23. The shirt reads, “My shirt is SAVEing lives, what is yours doing?” More than 60 runners and walkers are signed up for the event.


These posters were produced by Wright Mental Health and can be found in Wright County doctors’ offices and schools. Attached to the posters are tear-off sheets with a list of mental health resources and phone numbers to call.
