The Butterfly Run presented by Big Lots supports behavioral health research at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. Kids don’t wear their mental health on their sleeves, and by participating, you are helping to break stigmas and to give kids a voice. No action is too small. No voice is too young. Together, we can transform children’s mental health.

Donate to the Movement

Children’s mental health is an often overlooked and vastly underfunded component of pediatric health and research. Lack of healthcare resources and funding only complicate and hinder efforts to make significant changes that impact our youth during these critically important formative years. Gifts of any size will help us accelerate pediatric mental health research at Nationwide Children’s Hospital.
