Event description

Description

Release a Live Butterfly in memory of a loved one...

Each spring, Bereaved Families of Ottawa (BFO) holds a special community memorial and fundraising event. The event is open to the public. Registration is required if you would like to attend and purchase a butterfly to release in honour of your loved one.

The event begins with a remembrance ceremony in the Sacred Space inside the Beechwood National Memorial Center. This part of the event features live harp music, an inspirational reading and speaking the names of our loved ones.

Lastly, a remembrance walk takes place giving individuals an opportunity to reflect and share memories as they enjoy the beautiful gardens and peaceful grounds of the Beechwood National Cemetery. At your own pace, complete a full or partial figure 8 walk. Light Refreshments will follow.


This is an Annual Memorial Event & Fundraiser for BFO. We hope you will join us and bring your family and friends to support both you and BFO at this transformative event.

Help support BFO financially by collecting PLEDGES for BFO in support of your walk:

Income tax receipts are issued to each pledger with a minimum pledge of $5.00. If you are interested in collecting pledges, down-load the pledge form off our website at: http://www.bfo-ottawa.org/annual-butterfly-release-walk-to-remember/ OR contact our office at events@bfo-ottawa.org to receive a copy of the form.


NOTE: Doors open at 2:00 - plan to arrive early as this is a popular event.
