The Butterfly Run

The Butterfly Run, presented by Big Lots, is a family fitness event that takes place around the country to grow awareness, break stigmas and raise funds for lifesaving pediatric behavioral health research. More research is needed to understand the causes behind the increasing rates of behavioral health issues in children and to determine the best treatments to improve outcomes.

Every mile completed in each Butterfly Run means more hope and possibilities for children and their families. With every step we take together, we’re changing behavioral health outcomes for kids everywhere.

Changing Behavioral Health Outcomes

Our first Butterfly Run in Tempe, Arizona was a family fitness event to grow awareness, break stigmas and raise funds for lifesaving pediatric behavioral health research at Nationwide Children's Hospital. Let's start the conversation & create a butterfly effect to help children and teens with mental and behavioral health disorders.
