CABOT, AR--Members of the Cabot community remembers a slain mother of 4 today by having a 5k race in her honor.

Runners and walkers of all ages gathered today to honor Sharae Bryant and help out the four children she left behind.

Sharae Bryant was killed by her husband last year.

Three women organized the event and cheered on participants as they passed by. They said they knew it would be the only way to honor her
because she was a runner and running is something she loved to do.

Lonoke County Sheriff John Staley says he graduated high school with Bryant and her husband Charlie was an auxillary deputy with his
department. Staley was the first official on the scene that day.

"I'll tell you this was one of the most tragic events I've ever experienced," Staley said.

Donations were collected throughout the day. All proceeds from the race going to Bryant's relatives who are raising the four kids.
Bryant's children are between the ages of 2 and 16.
