Peterborough Butterfly Run

Peterborough Butterfly Run

Spring 2023

We are proud to be a founding partner along with the Partners in Pregnancy Clinic of the Peterborough Butterfly run which supports individuals and families who have experienced a loss during pregnancy, the loss of a child or are unable to conceive.  To date more than $125,000 has been raised through the annual spring run, creating resources and supports for these individuals and families, educational opportunities for local healthcare providers in order to better meet patient needs, and investments into the run itself to create a community space that is affordable for all.

After a very successful Virtual run in April of 2022, we hope to return to a live run in Downtown Peterborough in April of 2023.  We will have an announcement early 2023.  Please follow the Peterborough Butterfly Run Facebook page for more information.

Funds raised at the event have been used to provide ongoing specialized education in Perinatal Bereavement Care to healthcare providers across Peterborough City and County, establish more than 10 lending libraries for individuals and their families located across Peterborough City and County, as well as the development of bereavement kits for families and individuals who experience early and later pregnancy loss and infant loss. Since 2018, more than 500 bereavement kits have been provided to families and individuals by health care providers and PRHC.
