Butterfly Run


Butterfly Run

Guardian Angel Foundation is proud to present the 5th Annual Butterfly Run. This event is held each year to raise awareness of grief and loss and is the main fundraiser for Camp Angel for Grieving Kids and other bereavement programs. The 5k community event begins with a memorial live butterfly release to honor the memory of loved ones who have passed away. The Butterfly Run is located in beautiful Prophetstown State Park in Battle Ground, IN and also includes Caterpillar Corner with crafts and games, as well as, the Flutter Fun Run for children under 10 years of age. 

This event will raise awareness of grief and loss while offering community members a forum to honor and remember their loved ones who have passed away. The Butterfly Run will also raise funds for Camp Angel and other family bereavement services.
