The butterfly add-on is an additional cost where you will receive a live butterfly to release before you begin the run/walk. Butterflies are significant to us here at PILSC. They remind us of our little ones that are no longer here. That is why we have the option to release a butterfly in honour of your journey.

Prior to making our decision to release butterflies, we researched the ethical release of butterflies. What we found was when people bring butterflies into a region, they are not native to, the butterflies will die. For example, when people bring monarch butterflies (native to Ontario) into Alberta and release them, they will not survive.

Based on this information, we chose a company in Alberta that is ethically based with their butterflies. They only sell butterflies native to the region and are dedicated to ethical release. Should you wish to learn more please visit: http://butterflyab.ca

Yes strollers are allowed!

As much as we love dogs, they are not permitted at the walk.

No bikes are allowed for safety.
