Because the health needs of our patients never stop, even during a pandemic, all proceeds go directly to support our patients and their families. This year's event is both Live at World's Fair Park on Saturday, August 7th at 8:30am (10k) and 8:45am (5k), and Virtual between Saturday, July 31 and Saturday, August 7, 2021.
This year's run will include a virtual component. The virtual format allows participants to complete the 5k, 10k or fun walk wherever it is safe and convenient, while practicing social distancing. You can participate in your neighborhood, on a local bike or nature trail, in your living room, on your treadmill or even in your yard. You can run, walk, bike or anything that gets you moving. Take a selfie or video to show how you, friends, family and even pets are participating. All participants will receive a Butterfly Run commemorative T-Shirt (virtual participants' cost includes shipping). Put on your butterfly wings and post pictures and times on your social media using #ButterflyRun.
