Join us in a day to walk in memory of children loved, to connect with families caring for children with life-limiting illness and to build a future with better pediatric palliative care.
The Butterfly Run Walk + Flutter features a professionally chip-timed 5k run, 1 mile walk, and a Flutter Fun Run for kids of all ages. Bring the family to enjoy the run and the party in the park! There will be children’s activities, entertainers, music, and opportunities to connect with healthcare teams and other families!
By choosing “Heartlight / Lurie Children’s” as the beneficiary when you register for the event, 50% of the funds raised will go directly to supporting Lurie Children’s Heartlight Bereavement Program.
The mission of Heartlight is to offer support and resources to grieving families when confronted with the loss of a child. From support groups offered in English and Spanish to regular educational mailings and personal phone calls to the Memories Held bereavement photography program, Heartlight strives to support the journey of healing, and to let families know they are not alone.
These services are provided by Lurie Children’s to families at no cost. However, we could not offer the comprehensive programming of Heartlight without generous philanthropic support. We kindly ask you to consider joining us in support of Heartlight and the families that we work with.
If you have any additional questions - please contact Daniela Bueno, Heartlight Specialist, at email@example.com or 312-227-4119.
