Although a totally different kind of Butterfly Run/Walk was held in 2020, faithful runners and walkers did not let the pandemic dampen their spirits! There were 343 registered runners and walkers in the 5K and 42 children in the Fun Run. The Butterfly Foundation is very appreciative to all those that participated in the August 22, 2020 Virtual Event.
Sponsors for this event in the midst of COVID were simply amazing! The Foundation raised $84,000, and 100% of the money will go to families who have children with life-altering illnesses. The children the Foundation is able to assist because of this support are very grateful. Since its inception, the Foundation has served 311 children’s families and has given monetary grants totaling $789,060! The majority of this funding comes from the annual 5K Run.
The Butterfly Foundation is gearing up to kick off the 12th Annual Butterfly 5K, which will be held on Saturday, June 5, 2021. Hopefully, this year’s event will be a same-day race instead of a virtual run like last year. Sponsor forms will go out in February. Be watching for yours, and save the date!
