Phoebe’s Flight is an annual 5K walk/run that raises money for Phoebe’s Fund, a 501(c)(3) charity benefiting parents who have experienced stillbirth or neonatal loss. All proceeds from Phoebe’s Flight go to Phoebe’s Fund, which helps couples of pregnancy and infant loss seek the grief therapy that they need by awarding them money to cover the costs of their therapy.
Phoebe’s Flight was named after Phoebe Ferguson, who passed away just a few days after her due date. In their effort to honor Phoebe’s memory and support other parents who have experienced similar tragedies, Phoebe’s parents, Gavin and Stacy, started Phoebe’s Flight to raise money for the charity Phoebe’s Fund. Phoebe’s dad, Gavin from The Wake Up Call on 106.5 The End, will be hosting along with Katie, Rayne, and Intern Kevin. There will be bounce houses and music at the finish line. Last but not least, because Stacy’s biggest pregnancy craving while pregnant with Phoebe was root beer floats, your reward for finishing the 5K will be a free, frosty-cold root beer float at the Phoebe’s Floats station.
This is an event for celebration, but also, for remembrance. We encourage you to personalize this experience, perhaps by wearing customized shirts or carrying pictures of babies you are honoring. Feel comfortable in the company of others who understand this pain, won’t judge your sorrow, and will lift each other up. Please join us for Phoebe’s Flight!
