Event’s History

On Cloud Nine was founded in 2001 to honor the memory of Paige Barnett, who passed away at the age of 18 months on February 2, 2000. The event, established by Paige’s parents, Kent Barnett and Lauren Heath, supports the children of Horizons for Youth. On Cloud Nine also now pays tribute to Lauren Heath, who passed away in July of 2015, after a courageous battle with brain cancer.

Our work would not be possible without our generous supporters. To donate to Horizons for Youth and keep the legacy of Lauren and Paige alive, please visit our donate page below.
