We gather to recognize the children whose names have been added to the

memorial walls as well as honor all children's bricks. The gathering includes

a butterfly release along with reading of each new child's name by family

members or friends.

This gathering is a time to grieve the loss of our beloved children, but also to

honor them in a beautiful and peaceful setting where they will be remembered

with dignity and hope. We remember, celebrate,  and share the stories of our children during the Remembrance event.


All families are welcome. 

​This year, we gather at the Children's Memorial on Sunday, May 28th, 2023 beginning at 3:00 pm followed by refreshments and fellowship.

Watch our Facebook page for updates as the event approaches.

2023 Wicked Women's Wine Run & Stroll

Hello all you Wicked Women and Men- 

On behalf of Heartfelt, Inc. thank you so much for participating in our sixth Wicked Wine Run/Walk and Stroll!  What a beautiful day!!!  We couldn’t have asked for better weather.  We had just over 110 people participate in the walk/run and the tasting stroll.  Please spread the word - if the 5k “wicked” course is too much for you come and enjoy the event by participating in the tasting stroll.  You can even do both!  


Thank you to our corporate sponsors Cattle Bank and Trust, Jones Bank and Union Bank & Trust and our event partners Junto Wine and Boom Eatery.  All funds raised will benefit the Heartfelt Memorial located on the NW corner of Concordia University’s campus.  


We also appreciate Dr. Gabe Rahn, DC, ART from Ascend Chiropractic who came out and provided free treatments and a special shoutout to Dave & Tammy Miller who entertained us with their music.
