Children's Hospital Butterfly Run is virtual in 2020!

Because the health needs of our patients never stop, even during a pandemic, all proceeds go directly to support our patients and their families. Due to the current restrictions, this year’s event is virtual and will take place Saturday, August 1, through Saturday, August 8, 2020.

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. Put on your butterfly wings and post pictures and times on your social media using #ButterflyRun.


If you are unable to run or walk, we need you to be a HERO for East Tennessee Children’s Hospital by signing up to help raise critical funds for our patients and families.  Now more than ever, Children’s Hospital needs the support of our community.

It is easy to get started and multiply your impact!  Sign up to be a fundraiser, set your goal, spread the word and challenge your friends, family and neighbors to support you along the way.  We help make it easy by providing a fundraising page you can share.  Click here to get started!

Be creative, have fun, stay safe and most of all, support Children’s Hospital.
