Aaron’s Butterfly Run Ottawa/Gatineau
October 14 @ 9:30 am
Aaron’s Butterfly Run is a 1 mile family walk/run and 5 km walk/run on Saturday October 14th, 2017 in at Brewer Park in Ottawa. Aaron’s Butterfly Run 2017 is the 1st charity run of its kind in the Ottawa and Gatineau area, supporting individuals and families who experience the devastating losses from miscarriage, infant loss and/or infertility.
It is estimated that 1 in 4 women will experience miscarriage or pregnancy loss (also known as perinatal loss) and that 1 in 6 Canadians experience infertility.
Being a bereaved parent is a path that no one should walk alone. Please help us support families in Ottawa/Gatineau by joining us on Saturday October 14th, 2017.
In addition to raising awareness and supporting those who’ve experienced miscarriage, infant loss and/or infertility, all proceeds from the run will go to Roger Neilson House, a program of the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO).
