Heaven’s Cradle, formed by Abby Lackey after the loss of her baby at 20 weeks, is designed to assist families who lose premature babies. There is the grief and emptiness the family experiences, but for some families they are blindsided by no insurance coverage for stillborn babies.
Heaven’s Cradle is a non-profit funded by the West Tennessee Healthcare Foundation and the funds or donations are received through events like this run. Dinner was held on the rooftop of the parking garage where there was a huge turnout of supporters and couples who have experienced a family loss.
