Thank You For Helping Us Help The Community!

The Rattler Run is coordinated by the Medicine Hat Be Fit For Life (BFFL) Centre. The BFFL Centre works together, alongside many partners to inspire, educate and support Albertans to lead healthy, physically active lifestyles! The Rattler Run is proud to focus on a great cause...YOU! We want this to be an opportunity for individuals of all ages and experience levels to enjoy physical activity together! 

Where does the money go you may ask? This event is designed as cost-recovery but if there is money raised from the race this goes back to the BFFL Centre so that we can continue our work in both the college and community at large! This includes creating resources, providing support and hosting events for coaches, teachers, recreation leaders, and other physical literacy champions to help our community be active for life!
