The Anunal Buffs4Life Family Fun run is the family event of the season! Come out and spend a beautiful summer morning with the Buff community meeting current and former athletes, coaches and fans. It’s perfect for all ages and all abilities. Food, Music, games and lots of great energy makes this event fun for the entire community…And has a great cause!
Over the past 4 years this run has raised close to $70K for Buffs families in need to offset medical bills. Over the past 10 years the Buffs4Life Foundation has raised over $500K for families in the Buff community and we remain steadfast in our mission that no Buff be left to fight alone. We strongly believe in our values and are grateful for such a giving community to be involved with.
The 2017 Kyle MacIntosh “Attitude is Everything” recipient for the Buffs4Life Fun Run is former Ralphie Handler and long time Ralphie Program Director Ben Frei. Ben was recently diagnosed with Ataxia, a neurological disease impacting his ability to control movement and balance. Buffs4Life is partnering with Ben to raise funds for the National Ataxia Foundation (http://www.ataxia.org/)and help in their efforts to fund a clinical trial of a breakthrough drug that slows the progression of the disease. We look forward to welcoming Ben to the Buffs4Life family and showing him the community support that recognizes his tireless support of the Buffs!
