Event Summary

The Butterfly Run Quinte was started in 2016 by three local moms wanting to fundraise and support families who have experienced a loss during pregnancy or the loss of a child.

This local event is organized in partnership with the Belleville General Hospital Foundation. Funds collected for the 2020 season will be directed toward the Child Bereavement Fund as well as equipment purchases for the maternity/pediatric floor of Belleville General Hospital. 
With funds raised from the three previous runs, Barb, Beth and Loralee have provided over 550 kits to Quinte 7 and ER departments for Quinte Health Care (Belleville, Picton, Trenton and Bancroft). Compassionate care training was also provided for hospital staff, and equipment was purchased for Quinte 7/Labour and Delivery.  The Butterfly Girls are also currently working with Quinte Health Care to develop a specific delivery room and family suite for bereaved families on the maternity floor.
The 4th Butterfly Run will take place on Sunday May 3, 2020 at Zwicks Centennial Park, Belleville Ontario. The event will feature a family walk and 5km walk/run. The family walk is free for kids 12 and under! Participants who have registered for the 5k walk/run may participate in the family walk at no additional charge.
