“Twilight Run” RaIses Funds and Awareness for “Heaven’s Cradle”
JACKSON,Tenn. — Runners laced up their shoes on Thursday night for a cause that some say has been silent for too long. This was the second annual race for “Heaven’s Cradle”, an organization founded to remove the silence surrounding infant loss. The “Twilight Run” raised awareness and money to provide ‘Grace Bags’ for families delivering in Jackson as well as funding the Serenity Garden. Funds will also help train staff to work with families who have lost a child. “It’s a fund and it’s also a group. We have about 65 families that have gone through still birth or infant loss and we’ve come together and one mission is to help new families who are going through this for the first time we want them to know they’re not alone,” said Abby Lackey, founder of “Heaven’s Cradle.” The run was followed by a rooftop dinner and live music.
