Release a live butterfly in memory of a loved one.
The Bereaved Families of Ontario — Ottawa Region. A Memorial Butterfly Release is a fundraising walk/run and butterfly release organized by the Bereaved Families of Ontario – Ottawa Region. Funds raised go to support BFO-Ottawa’s programs and services.
Families and friends are welcome to join us on the hill overlooking the garden and pond at the Beechwood, the National Cemetery of Canada, and share with your family and friends in the symbolic release of a butterfly in memory of a loved one, a symbol of hope and a symbol of transformation. For those who wish, a memorial walk will take place after the butterfly release. At your own pace, complete a full or partial figure 8 path through the 160 acres. It’s a time to reflect and share memories. For questions or to register by phone or email, please contact BFO-Ottawa directly: [email protected]
