The Independence Day 5K benefits the Children’s Wellness Fund and includes a Firecracker 1 Mile walk or run that is just for fun, 5K Walk, and a 5K Run. This event takes place at HealthPoint Fitness in Jackson annually on the 4th of July.

Event proceeds benefit our Children’s Wellness Fund, but more specifically, children with special needs.  Camp Super Nova is designed for children and adults with special needs. Camps are divided into two age groups, 5 to 12 years and 12 to adult. We offer four to five events at our Jackson facility each year. Camp Super Nova is designed for people with a variety of disabilities—physical, emotional and behavioral.  Donations support programs such as transportation for field trips such as bowling, golf, waterpark, conservation center and other community destinations. With your participation, together, we can make a meaningful difference in the lives of those in our community most in need of care.

Share Walk

October 8, 2016
Cape County Park - South
Pavilion #20

The Share Walk takes place every October around the beautiful and serene setting of the South Cape County Park Lake. Complimentary drinks and refreshments are provided during the walk. A short memorial service follows with the reading of participants’ baby’s names. Please consider joining us as we all walk the steps many little ones were never able to take.

The annual Share Walk for Remembrance & Hope allows families to find comfort in friendship, strength in shared experiences and hope for healing and happiness. Proceeds from this event will allow Share to continue to support bereaved families at no charge.

This year we had 160 walkers and 3 dogs participate and raised $12,807.

Sounds of the Season

SoutheastHEALTH Foundation raised over $18,600 Sunday, December 4th, at the 21st Annual Sounds of the Season. The event took place at Cape First Church Sunday afternoon and brought in over 650 attendees, a banner year! Money raised from Sounds of the Season will go to the Cancer Care Fund which provides for the special needs of our friends who are battling cancer, right here, close to home.

The Rueseler family fondly remembers their mother, Mrs. Kitty Rueseler, and her valiant journey with cancer. Kitty’s children are the honorary chairs of the SoutheastHEALTH Foundation’s 2017 Sounds of the Season Holiday Concert. The event raises funds to support the Southeast Cancer Care Fund, which provides for the special needs of our friends who are battling cancer, right here, close to home.

Princess Tea

This enchanting event, which annually draws hundreds of participants, benefits our Pediatrics, OB and Neonatal Intensive Care units. Princess Tea guests enjoy sweets and tea or lemonade fit for a queen with very special appearances by Cinderella and some of her princess pals. Young princesses are invited to the dance floor to sing and dance with their new princess friends. Proceeds help provide excellent healthcare to other little princesses, princes and their families when they need the best healing in all of the land. SoutheastHEALTH, the first hospital in the region to establish neonatal intensive care services, is devoted to providing excellent and compassionate infant and pediatric care for patients and their families.
