Help us help kids
Children’s relies on community support to fund the programs and services we provide for kids and families. That’s why individual and team fundraising is such an important part of Briggs & Al’s Run & Walk. 100% of the funds you raise provide critical support for kids and help us prevent and ease the suffering of children.

Good news — fundraising is easy
Kick start your fundraising by making your own personal gift. You can also log in to your participant center for fundraising tools that make it easy to send emails to your friends and family and ask for their support with a donation. Share your story on your personal page and let people know why you are helping us help kids — your story can inspire others to get involved. If you raise more than $100, you qualify to win prizes.

How do we describe the courage and spirit of the kids we serve? We call them Children's Champions.

At Briggs & Al's Run & Walk, our Children's Champions are the guests of honor, and we enjoy giving them the red-carpet treatment! Champions receive free registration and a t-shirt to the event and enjoy an exclusive Champions breakfast while Star Wars characters and Disney princesses mingle in the crowd.

As excitement builds, we invite families and their Children's Champion to stand on a raised platform at the start line, so thousands of runners and walkers can high-five and wave to the kids as they pass.

Would your Champion enjoy a day of celebration? Register now and choose "Children's Champion" as the participation type for your Champion.

Our corporate sponsors are a vital part of the Briggs & Al's Run & Walk story. We simply could not do this without them. A special thank you goes to Briggs & Stratton — our title sponsor for more than 20 years, and a company that walks the walk with an impressive team turnout and impactful fundraising. Boston Store, Marquette University, and Tricom Funding have also provided invaluable support through sponsorship, team participation and fundraising for numerous years, and we are deeply grateful.

How do sponsorships benefit corporations and organizations?

  • Sponsors' names are aligned with one of the nation's largest independent run/walks, a highly valued and high-profile Milwaukee event, and a world-class pediatric hospital — ranked No. 4 in the nation by Parents magazine.
  • As a signature event for Children's Hospital, Briggs & Al's Run & Walk — with its sponsors — is promoted throughout the community and state with a comprehensive 360° awareness campaign, print, billboard, media, TV, radio and online.
  • Each year, more than 15,000 people participate in the run and walk, all of them wearing t-shirts bearing sponsor logos, and receiving collateral bearing sponsor information.
  • We offer a range of sponsorship options to fit individual company needs.

Every year, we are humbled by the success of this community event. We owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to our 500 volunteers (yes, 500!) who help Briggs & Al's Run & Walk go smoothly for everyone involved.

Interested in being part of the story by volunteering your time? Our volunteers do all kinds of crazy and fun things, from handing out water to shouting times to runners as they pass. Some even guard driveways to help keep everyone safe, and all of them make a difference for kids.
