BATON ROUGE - Former NFL player, Warrick Dunn, held his first Mother's Day brunch to honor moms.

Dunn's mother was a police officer who was shot and killed while on duty. The former football star says he made it his mission to show appreciation to mothers in honor of his own.

"Moms today, across this country, that are going to provide for their families and that make all of the sacrifices sometimes in their families, they don't get that recognition. And this is the way to say thank you," said Dunn.

Betty's Hope, a program named after his mother was highlighted at the event.

The program focuses on grieving children ages 5 to 18, giving help to kids who lost someone close to them.

Dunn hopes the Mother's Day brunches will become an annual tradition.
