SARATOGA SPRINGS - It was a successful beginning to a new Mother's Day tradition.

More than 600 people---mothers, fathers and children took to the roads of the state park to raise money for children who have endured some tough times.

Called Run Like a Mother, the 5k run and walk was put on by Kelly’s Angels, the charity that gives grants to children who have lost a parent to cancer.

Kelly's Angels was started in memory of Kelly Mulholland, wife of NewsChannel 13 reporter Mark Mulholland.  She was a popular teacher and mother who lost her battle with cancer just a few days after her 37th birthday.
