Butterfly Run in support of RNH

Welcome to the fourth annual Butterfly Run Ottawa! This year’s run/walk is taking place virtually on October 3 & 4, 2020. While it may look different from previous years, our hope is that this virtual event will give many more people the opportunity to participate, no matter where they are located.
The Butterfly Run is an event that brings the perinatal and infant loss community together to honour our babies and support each other through the loss journey. In addition, this event also aims to raise awareness for the resources and support available to loss families in the Ottawa region. One of these local resources is Roger Neilson House (RNH), a pediatric palliative care facility that offers perinatal loss and bereavement programs. RNH has been a temporary home to many of our families and they continue to make an incredible impact by offering free personal counselling services, a parent-matching program, and several bereavement groups including perinatal loss and pregnancy after loss. Therefore, all proceeds raised from the Butterfly Run go directly to RNH. We are so grateful and proud to be able to give back to RNH but we know it wouldn’t be possible without any of you.
To all of our returning participants, thank you for your continued commitment and dedication to this special event. For those of you taking part in the Butterfly Run for the very first time, we are sorry for the circumstances that led you here but we welcome you, your family and friends.
We look forward to running/walking with all of you!
