Heartfelt Poker Fitness Challenge  E-mail





Saturday, May 10

Kids Fitness Challenge begins at 8:00 am
Poker Fitness Challenge begins at 8:30 am


Heartfelt is holding a Poker Fitness Challenge to raise funds for the Children's Memorial. 

The course is approximately 3.3 miles with 5 “stations” that you stop at. You may run, walk or bike to the stations. At each station, you will draw a card – at the end of the course you will have your 5 card “poker” hand. In addition to drawing cards at the stations, there will be a fitness challenge (jumping jacks, shooting a basketball, push--‐ups, etc.) Should you choose to participate in the challenge you will perform the number of pushups, jumping jacks, etc. that match the card you drew. Ex: draw the 5 of hearts – you do 5 jumping jacks, draw the king of diamonds --‐ 10 jumping jacks, etc. Then it is off to the next station. Time is not of essence in this race – the highest poker hand will be the winner! The kids’ fitness challenge will have 3 stations around the St. Vincent’s parking lot. At each station, the kids will draw a card and do that number of challenges (frog hops, jumping jack, etc.). When finished – the points of their three cards are totaled and prizes will be awarded to the highest points and lowest points.

We are a non-denominational grief support group for parents who have experienced the death of a child. This group is facilitated by qualified volunteers and professionals. Heartfelt Connections offers support, confidentiality, and promotes healthy grieving and recovery. It is a place for parents to share experience, seek information and offer support to each other.

Where Else. . .
  • Can you come into a group of complete strangers and talk about the death of your child?
  • Can you know that you are not alone in your bereavement?
  • Can others sincerely say to you, "I know how you feel"?
  • Will you not hear, "It's time you were over it and started getting on with your life" and other unwelcome advice?
  • Can you cry without feeling ashamed or laugh without feeling guilty?
  • Can you just listen and not talk if you do not wish to?
  • Can you reach out to newly bereaved parents who are experiencing the grief and pain you have felt?
  • Can you share the love and memories of your child(ren) with others?


Children's Memorial

We have a vision to erect a children's memorial in Seward in memory of the children who have left us too soon. It doesn't matter how old the child was when they died. To a parent they are their child forever.

The Memorial will be in a serene and peaceful Prayer Garden. The memorial will be a place to sit and reflect on the memories of your child. It will be a place without the stigma of a cemetery, which reflects coldness and sadness. The child's resting place may not be near where the parents live, which leaves another emptiness. Death ends a life, not a relationship.
