Weighted Angels is a pending-501(c)3 non-profit organization operating out of the Virginia Peninsula. This organization provides families with weighted stuffed animals that resemble weights of the babies lost by its founding 7 members. Each animal and weight is personal to that of a founding member. No family has to leave the hospital empty handed.
The Weighted Angels 5K is an opportunity to raise awareness as well as funds to help us better serve the stillbirth and infant loss families of the Richmond, Williamsburg, Hampton Roads, and Virginia Beach areas.
