JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – Hundreds of people walked this weekend to remember the friends and family members that they've lost over the years. 

The nonprofit group called Mothers of Angels hosted its fourth annual Walk to Remember Saturday morning at Craighead Forest Park in Jonesboro.

Organizers expected more than 300 people to walk the mile-long trek that honors the memory of local children that have lost their lives.

Before the walk started, the group dedicated its recently completed memorial garden. Dora Edings, who founded the nonprofit, says proceeds from the walk will help her group finish paying for this special place for parents.

"It's a beautiful, beautiful place for parents to go," Edings said. "It's a place where they can come out, sit and reflect and think about their children."

Edings started Mothers of Angels in 2004 to provide support services to mothers like her that have lost a child.

The proceeds from the walk will also benefit other projects the group does, like a grave marker assistance fund and providing families memory boxes at St. Bernards Medical Center.
