September Meeting

Thursday September 13, 2018

Speakers:
Lesley Patry Kerford and Tamara Baldwin

Lesley grew up in Ottawa for most of her life and decided to settle in Brockville after graduating from Carleton University in 2007.
Last year Lesley had a daughter, Clementine, who was stillborn at 36 weeks. Clementine was born in Ottawa and when they came back home to Brockville Lesley and her family found there was a huge lack of resources to access in our community for people going through this type of loss.
 A few months later her co-workers put together a team to participate in the Butterfly Run Ottawa as at that time herself and another co-work had both lost a child within 5 months of each other (and another co-worker since). After participating in that run Lesley knew she wanted to bring something like that to our community and that is how the Brockville Butterfly Run came to be.

Tamara became involved with the Brockville Butterfly Run for two main reasons.  The first being that the agency she is employed at has 3 staff members that suffered from a loss of child within a span of 18 months.  Wanting to be able to support her colleagues, she joined the Brockville Butterfly Run committee to gain further knowledge and provide support.

With the help of friends and other local women the first annual Brockville Butterfly Run will be taking place this year on October 14th in memory of Clementine and all of the other babies who we hold in our hearts.
