Aaron’s Butterfly Run is a 1 mile family walk/run and 5km walk/run at Brewer Park in Ottawa to support individuals/families who have experienced a loss during pregnancy or the loss of a child by:
•Increasing community awareness and encouraging dialogue about pregnancy, infant and child loss;
•Providing an opportunity to create connections and community; and
•Providing funds for the perinatal hospice and perinatal loss bereavement programs at Roger Neilson House in Ottawa.

On October 14th, 2017, we will be walking or running to raise awareness for all types of pregnancy and infant loss. All registration proceeds will go to Roger Neilson House, a program of the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO). Aaron's Butterfly Run Ottawa/Gatineau will be raising funds for the perinatal hospice and perinatal loss programs at Roger Neilson House. Aaron was a patient of the perinatal hospice program and spent 100 precious minutes with his family after birth in June 2016.
