About the event

Weighted Angels is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization operating out of the Virginia Peninsula. We provide weighted stuffed animals to grieving families who have experienced stillbirth and infant loss before they leave the hospital. Our mission is to make sure no family leaves the hospital with empty arms. Did you know the fastest 5k ever run was completed by Joshua Cheptegei in 12 minutes and 35 seconds? With the current rate of stillbirth being 1 every 16 seconds, that means in just that short time, an average of 47 babies were born silently into this world. The current statistics are alarming and heart breaking. These families need our support now more than ever.   Join us for the Weighted Angels 5K to raise awareness, walk/run in remembrance and honor of our loved ones, and raise funds to help us better serve the pregnancy, stillbirth, and infant loss families of Virginia. Your support and participation will help bring awareness during October Infant & Pregnancy Loss Awareness Month. Participants can run/walk in person or virtually this year. We would love to have you join us! Post your pre and post-race pictures on Facebook and Instagram!
