First the first time ever, Paige’s Butterfly Run is going virtual from August 15 through August 20. Our goal remains the same, to put on a stellar community virtual event while raising the critical dollars necessary to fund pediatric cancer research and patient programs at Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital.
You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself. There will be no specific course. This means you can jog, walk, skip or dance. You can do this on the sidewalk, on a track, on a treadmill or on a trail, just remember to use recommended safety precautions and practice social distancing.
Virtual Paige’s Butterfly Run is comprised of two events:
– 3K Fun Fitness Run/Walk
To make Virtual Paige’s Butterfly Run even more fun, we have created some contests:
– Most creative team shirts
– Most creative signage
– Most creative costume
– Participant from the furthest distance – Since this year’s run/walk is virtual that means there are zero geographical barriers to participating so that means you don’t need to be in Central New York to join us!
Share with us your results and pictures or videos on social media by tagging @PaigesButterflyRun and using the hashtag #PaigesButterflyRun2020. We’ll also be sharing your pictures and videos on our social media accounts throughout the virtual run/walk.
A virtual ceremony will be held on August 22nd.
