Thank you to everyone who joined us and supported the 2nd annual Butterfly Run Ottawa on Saturday October 13, 2018. We are very excited to announce that the 3rd annual Butterfly Run Ottawa will take place on Sunday, October 20, 2019!

WHY WALK OR RUN?

Supporting Ottawa and area families who have experienced infertility, a loss during pregnancy or the loss of an infant. Charlotte and Théo's Butterfly Run Ottawa/Gatineau aimed to raise awareness around pregnancy loss, child loss, pregnancy after loss, and infertility. The run also aimed to show support and compassion for those who've experienced such losses.

In addition to raising awareness and supporting those who've experienced miscarriage, infant loss and/or infertility, all proceeds from the run are donated to Roger Neilson House.

Roger Neilson House offers multiple services, including a Perinatal Hospice program which provides support to families whose babies are likely to die before, during, or shortly after birth. Perinatal Hospice includes comprehensive support from the time of diagnosis, through the birth and death of the infant, and into the postpartum period.

Roger Neilson House also offers a Perinatal Loss Bereavement Support Group for parents who have lost a pregnancy over 20 weeks or infant death (up to the first 28 days of life).

Fundraising Bottle Drive

Help the Butterfly Run raise important funds for the race by donating your empties on Saturday, Aug 10th at the Barrhaven and Manotick Beer Stores!

Resources

Upon experiencing pregnancy or infant loss and infertility, volunteers of the Butterfly Run came to the unfortunate realization that there is often very little resources or information provided to those experiencing this type of loss. The Butterfly Run started gathering the information and resources it came across, and started sharing it with those who needed it.
