JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A 5K race this weekend will help to raise money for a project that helps families during a difficult time. 

The 4th annual ShareHope Mother's Day 5K will be held at 8 a.m. Saturday, May 12 at the NEA Baptist Medical Campus on East Johnson Avenue. 

According to a post on the race's Facebook page, the event is hosted by NEA ShareHope, which is a program of the NEA Baptist Charitable Foundation. 

The money raised from the race will benefit the ShareHope Family Fund. 

The fund helps provide financial assistance for ShareHope families that do not have the money to pay for the cost of a funeral for their baby, officials said in the post. 

More information about the program can be found at the program's website
