EUGENE, Ore.-- Parenting Now held thier third annual Mother's Day 5K run Sunday morning in Alton Baker Park.
Race participants showed early for a jazzercising warm-up before the run started. There was also bubbles, face paint, and magic for kids.
The run is used to raise money for the Parenting Now programs, which teach parenting education and primary abuse prevention.
