A Northland teen is working hard to raise awareness for cancer in the community. 13-year-old Emma Haugen is organizing the Morgan Park Walk for Hope, and this is already her second year doing it.

Emma was 10 years old when she first decided to create the event, after her friend was diagnosed with breast cancer. She says she got a lot of support from her family and area businesses in planning the walk.

The Morgan Park Walk for Hope is Saturday, August 9 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Participants will meet at Morgan Park Goodfellowship Community Center at 1242 88th Ave. W. in Duluth for a 2.4km walk around Morgan Park. Everyone who participates is invited to a picnic dinner afterward at the community center.

The walk is for all ages, and registration is $20. The price includes a t-shirt, and for $5 participants will get a guaranteed prize valued at $5 or more.
