Hike for Hospice and Butterfly Release.

Hike for Hospice Dufferin is a national event that is connected to National Palliative Care Week in Canada.

However, we have combined our 13th Annual Hike for Hospice Dufferin with our Butterfly Release and have scheduled it for

June 11, 2023, to accommodate the two events.

Registration and fundraising are open now to raise funds and awareness for the clients, and families of Hospice Dufferin. Participants will be encouraged to run/walk on our 5 km modified hiking route the day of the event or if desired they can walk their own route in support of our efforts.

Hike for Hospice Dufferin brings people together in our community to support, comfort, and reflect while enjoying the beautiful trails of Monora Park.

Over the years, we’ve had amazing community involvement who have come together to walk and support our organization and the families and clients that we serve.

Our event also includes our beautiful butterfly release. Butterflies are released at the event, however, if you just want to purchase a butterfly and release it in your own special place, you can do that as well.

This is a beautiful way to honour those we love, and a great way to support the environment and Hospice Dufferin


Butterfly Release

Reserve your butterflies in memory of a loved one.

Each year, Hospice Dufferin does a Butterfly Release at the Hike for Hospice Dufferin.

However, you don't have to participate in the hike to purchase a butterfly, you can pick one up and take it to a place that is special to you.

"The Butterfly is nature's way of reminding us that there is always hope.

The Butterfly symbolizes transformation, growth, strength, endurance, and wisdom.

When the caterpillar is no more, the butterfly is born in ultimate freedom and beauty."

Our beautiful butterfly release is a way for our bereaved community members to reflect on and honour their loved ones and connect in a supportive and caring environment.
