Due to COVID-19 we are holding our 18th Annual Butterfly Run 5K/10K as a virtual event! Participants will run or walk wherever they choose between October 10-17 in remembrance of their loved ones and in support of Blue Ridge Hospice.
During this difficult time we need your support more than ever! Your participation and donation will provide comfort and support to our patients, their families, and our community.
Why Run? Why Donate?
We have held The Butterfly Run every year since 2002! It is our highest revenue generating event and a great way to reflect and remember your loved ones!
All proceeds from the race will go directly to Blue Ridge Hospice to provide quality end of life care to everyone, regardless of financial ability, and no-cost grief support to the community.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
It's up to you!
Run/walk wherever & whenever you want between October 10-17.
You'll have to track your distance and time on your own. There are many free apps you can download on your smart phone (a few examples: Map my Walk/Map my Run; Runkeeper; Pacer; Strava Running).
Take your time!
Want to walk/run one mile each day? Go for it! Or do it all at once - it's up to you!
Register anytime between now and October 17.
You can sign up as an individual or a team.
Start a Fundraiser!
All proceeds directly benefit our hospice patients. You can ask your friends and family to donate in memory or honor of a loved one. Raise $100 or more and we will refund your registration fee.
Collect your race packet.
We will have pick-up areas set up before October 10th to collect your race packet (includes t-shirt, bib, and tote bag). If you would prefer we mail it to you there is a $5 additional charge for packaging and postage.
Send us your race photo and time!
Once you have completed the race send us your time and a photo. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or post in our Facebook Event!
