Join us



We invite you to participate in The Butterfly 5K/10K to benefit Blue Ridge Hospice!  

Join us October 20 as we honor those we've lost and raise awareness and funds for patients and families.  Whether you're a runner or walker we invite you to take part in this event!

The 5K is a gorgeous walk or run through lush Virginia country... mountain views, beautiful scenery, and a variety of tree species at the VA State Arboretum. On the 10K course, you'll run through the arboretum, on through a barn, by grazing horses, and around an historic plantation estate!  

Your efforts will help Blue Ridge Hospice, a not-for-profit healthcare organization, continue with the mission of never turning anyone away based on financial ability.  Your walk or run will give others the gift of comfort, compassion, and dignity in their last months, weeks, and days.  THANK YOU!
