It is estimated that 1 in 4 women will experience miscarriage or pregnancy loss and that 1 in 6 Canadians experience infertility. While support exists, programs are often relatively unknown, underfunded, and hard to access. The taboo surrounding pregnancy and infant loss leaves many individuals and families dealing with their grief in isolation.
Being a Bereaved Parent is a Path That No One Should Walk Alone…
The Butterfly Run Vancouver exists to support those who have experienced infertility, pregnancy loss, and infant loss by organizing a memorial run to create community, raise awareness, and fundraise for supporting programs.
Register to get involved and participate in the walk or run on Saturday, October 2 alongside a community of families and advocates from across the province. Partial proceeds from this event will support the Reproductive Mental Health Research through the BC Women’s Health Foundation.
Due to COVID -19 restrictions, the 3rd Annual Run will be a virtual event again this year. Even though we can’t all be together as a community, we can be together – apart.
