ABOUT BATTLE OF THE BUFFALO
Battle of the Buffalo is a non-profit organization that exists to reduce the effects of cancer on families within the communities of Huntsville, Madison County, and the North Alabama area. The organization was founded in 2009 by the brothers of the Theta Pi Chapter of the Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity in honor of their late brother Paul Salmon, who passed away from Leukemia in 2007. Each year, Battle of the Buffalo hosts an annual chicken wing festival and 5k in Downtown Huntsville to raise awareness of the continuous fight against cancer through treatment, support, and research from Clearview Cancer Institute, Russel Hill Cancer Foundation, and HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology, raising over $200,000 to date.
