Join us!



Please join us October 19, 2019 as we honor those we've lost and raise awareness and funds for patients and families at The Butterfly Run (5K/10K) to benefit Blue Ridge Hospice!  Whether you're a runner or walker, we'd love to see you at the start line. 

The 5K is a gorgeous walk or run through lush Virginia country, with mountain views, beautiful scenery, and a variety of tree species at the VA State Arboretum. On the 10K course, you'll run through the arboretum, on through a barn, by grazing horses, and around a historic plantation estate!  

Your walk or run will allow Blue Ridge Hospice, a nonprofit hospice, to provide excellent end-of-life care to everyone, regardless of financial ability, and no-cost grief support to the community. THANK YOU!
