About the event

The metamorphosis from a caterpillar to a butterfly is nothing short of miraculous.  This year, the 13th annual Butterfly Run will be transformed to help some of East Tennessee’s biggest miracles by partnering with Friends of Tennessee’s Babies with Special Needs.  The Butterfly Fund family is honored to be working alongside this wonderful organization this year to continue the event so many of you have supported over the years.    

For years, runners have come together in August to race and raise support for children in need.  This year, we will continue that effort in the beautiful foothills of Maryville in May of 2024.  Proceeds from this year’s event will go to support Friends of Tennessee’s Babies with Special Needs.  This incredible organization works to enhance the potential of infants and young children with disabilities by offering support to their families and the early intervention professionals who serve them.  

We are incredibly excited to invite you to mark your calendar for May the 4th to join us for the 13th annual Butterfly Run.  Every mile completed, and every dollar raised means over 3,500 Tennessee children with special needs and their families will receive the support, resources and encouragement they need.  More details about this year’s event will be coming soon.  We look forward to joining you to celebrate and support East Tennessee’s babies with special needs!
