Run, Walk or Flutter Virtually!

If you are unable to join us on October 15, gather your family and head out to the park, your backyard or a favorite spot to complete your 1-mile walk or 5k on your own time. Or if you prefer the solitude, take this opportunity to reflect and remember your loved one during a solo walk/run.

Volunteer with Us!

As a team or by yourself, consider volunteering for this year’s Butterfly Run. Volunteer time can be scheduled pre- or post-event. Volunteers can pass out water or cheer on runners throughout the course!
