The On Our Sleeves 5K, formerly The Butterfly Run, presented by Big Lots Foundation is a community run and walk to grow awareness, break stigmas, and raise funds for the On Our Sleeves movement for children's mental health. Kids don’t wear their mental health on their sleeves, and by participating, you are helping to break stigmas and 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 the mission of On Our Sleeves, to provide free mental health educational resources to every community in America to educate families and empower advocates. We also support access to services by connecting families to trusted local resources.
