Butterfly Run/Walk set for next week at Great Valley H.S.

Great Valley High School will host the sixth annual Butterfly Run/Walk next Saturday, April 7. The event, a five-kilometer run/walk and a one-mile fun run, benefits the Elizabeth CiunciFoundation.

The foundation gives college scholarships to Great Valley seniors in honor of Ciunci, 1999 Great Valley graduate who was killed in a car accident with a drunk driver on November 26, 1999. Created by the Ciunci family in 2001, the foundation has raised more than $190,000.

It costs $15 to register for the run, $8 for children and there's a family rate of $40 for three people. Cash prizes of $200 will go to the top male and female finishers in the 5K run, with $100 awarded for second place and $50 for third.

Registration begins at 7:30 a.m. on April 7, with the runs kicking off at nine. For more information, or to register online, visit www.lbrun.org. Great Valley High School is located at 225 North Phoenixville Pike in Malvern
