Paige’s Butterfly Run 2018

Saturday, June 2nd, 2018!

Voted Best Organized Run/Walk in the
Syracuse New Times ‘Best Of’ Competition in 2016 & 2017!

Held in conjunction with the Taste of Syracuse, Paige’s Butterfly Run brings over 2,000 runners and walkers from across Central New York to downtown Syracuse each June to participate in one of the region’s premier 5K races while raising the critical dollars necessary to fund pediatric cancer research and patient programs at Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital.

Paige’s Butterfly Run is comprised of three events, which means there is something for everyone!

  • USAT&F certified 5K race in downtown Syracuse
  • 3K fun fitness run/walk
  • 40 ft. Caterpillar Crawl (free for children 5 and under)

Register today and join us as we raise funds to continue the fight against pediatric cancer!

Each year, over 60 children will be newly diagnosed with cancer and hundreds treated at Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital. The impact of such a diagnosis is far reaching, affecting not only that child but also his or her family and their community. 

Your support of Paige’s Butterfly Run allows us to continue to invest in research and patient programs that help provide the social, emotional and medical support for families who have already heard the words “your child has cancer”, ensuring that they have the resources they need.

Examples of these programs include:
Cancer in the Classroom: Supports patients,families, and school communities from initial diagnosis, throughout treatment and school re-entry.
Annual Sibling Event: Celebrate brothers and sisters for the courage they face and compassion they show.
Paige’s Family Assistance Fund: Assisting families at the Dr. William J. Waters Center for Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders at Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital having financial difficulties due to their child’s illness, with help for treatment, wellness and survivorship.

Thank you for registering and raising funds for Paige’s Butterfly Run 2018!
