As proud supporters of Nationwide Children’s Hospital Big Lots associates from around the country can join the Butterfly Run and break stigmas around children’s behavioral health! Complete your 5k run or walk anytime between September 1 - October 10 while fundrasing along the way.

Here’s how you can join:


If you are a District Team Training Leader, you can get your District involved by joining the Big Lots District Challenge! This is a great opportunity to engage your team as advocates for children’s mental health, promote fitness, and raise funds along the way.

Here is how it works:

  1. Each DTTL serves as a captain for their District by creating one profile for their entire team. Each District profile will be registered under the larger Big Lots team.

    Please note: individual associates will not register for the Butterfly Run on their own. Each District will be represented through the profile that the captain creates.
  2. DTTLs encourage their team to engage in activities found on the event details page, share photos and stories to start the conversation, and participate in the Butterfly Run on October 10.
  3. Associates from each District raise funds by sharing their District’s profile on social media and engaging their personal networks.

The BIG Prizes!

The TOP THREE engaged Districts receives NCH/Big Lots cobranded face masks for the entire team. Associates can engage by posting on social media, participating in special events, and sharing their story.

Don’t forget to use #OnOurSleeves when posting on social media!

The TOP fundraising District receives a catered lunch for the entire team.
