After losing her child in 2009, a Buzzards Bay woman has made it her mission to keep her daughter’s legacy alive while making other grieving families feel less alone.

Alisha Neal is the founder of Angel Babies and is thrilled to host the 3rd annual Angel Babies Ride on June 4th to offer a day of remembrance for the angel babies that will never be forgotten.

The Angel Babies Organization

Angel Babies was founded in 2012 in memory of Alisha Neal’s daughter, Hunter Grace.

“I was 17 weeks when we found out her heart stopped,” said Neal. “We knew nothing, I didn’t even know that was a thing…this is in memory of her, it has become her legacy.”

Angels Babies is a nonprofit organization that provides families who have lost a baby or child with support, compassion, and love.

“We hope to bring a little bit of comfort on those dark days,” said Neal. “We hope to bring them love and show them that their babies matter and they will be remembered.”

Angel Babies provides memorial events, burial gowns, support groups, and keepsake items, all in an effort to make sure grieving parents are not “walking alone.”

3rd Annual Angel Babies Ride

With around 100 bikes in attendance for last year’s event, Neal hopes to get that attendance number close to 200 for this year.

“We want it to be big and successful as we aim to break the silence and help break the taboo of baby loss,” she said. “We do everything pretty much out of pocket, so we aim to raise funds and provide even more help to families.

The ride begins at the Dartmouth Mall parking lot and ends at the John Alden Club in Plymouth. It is $25 per bike or car, with registration starting at 8 am. There will be lunch, raffles, and live music to wrap up the day, and all are welcome. Each participant will receive an Angel Babies patch.

This is one of those events that makes a person feel less alone. It’s an event that makes a difference.

Kickstands go up on June 4th for the 3rd Annual Angel Babies Ride.
