The Butterfly Effect

The Butterfly Effect is a non profit started by Lance and Katrina Osborne after having a special needs child with two genetic syndromes and learning that the expense of genetic testing can make a diagnosis unattainable for some families. Together, with Arkansas Children’s Hospital, a fund has been created in the genetics department that can assist families in the payment of these very expensive tests, thus helping give answers that they may never have received otherwise, and helping medical personnel to better treat them.

The first event, The Butterfly Race 5k ( in Springdale, AR took place August 2013 and raised $10,000 to donate to this fund, with Walmart being the premier sponsor. This year’s 5k race is scheduled for Sept. 6. Donors and sponsors are still needed. Please help children receive these potentially life saving tests! The Osbornes are dedicated to helping special needs children reach their full potential!
