Every step we take is a step in the right direction in better understanding behavioral health.

Every mile means more hope and possibilities for children and their families dealing with these issues.

Every action we take helps end the stigmas around behavioral health - for good.

Every walker and runner means one more person connected and inspired by what they can do to further this cause.

With the BUTTERFLY RUN, the action of this community will go a long way to helping children here...and everywhere.

Together We Create A Butterfly Effect
