Race Information

August 10, 2019 | World’s Fair Park

The Butterfly Dash and Bash, formerly The Butterfly Fund 5k, represents an exciting partnership between the Butterfly Fund family and East Tennessee Children’s Hospital.  All proceeds and donations from this new event will directly benefit the Pain & Palliative Care Program at East Tennessee Children’s Hospital. 

With this new partnership comes along a few changes.  In addition to a new name, the event is changing locations to a new course beginning and ending at World’s Fair Park and runs by cheering patients at East Tennessee Children’s Hospital, will include a 10k, and includes a burger festival (The Burger Bash) that begins shortly after the race. 

The Burger Bash is a new festival being organized by a group of volunteers in support of East Tennessee Children’s Hospital.  In 2019 race participants will receive (1) complimentary ticket into the Burger Bash event and also are eligible at registration to buy additional tickets to the festival.

Race participants will be eligible for discounted tickets to the festival if purchased at the time of race registration.

Thank you so much for your previous support of the Butterfly Fund and the fight against childhood cancer.  We hope you can join us as we transition this event to East Tennessee Children’s Hospital and strive to make even greater strides in the lives of families battling childhood cancer and other serious conditions.
