Hello! Welcome to my Briggs & Al's Run & Walk fundraising page. This event and the mission it supports mean a lot to me and I am thrilled you took the time to stop by. Thank you.
Why am I doing this?
As most of you know, I spent 15 years working at Children's. I truly believed in our mission of helping children. When I left Children's for Briggs, I felt like I wasn't going too far from home as far as helping children. This event is the one time I will push for donations. It is my child's birthday party. My baby shower. My child's christening, confirmation and graduation. Please donate what you can to support this organization and mission of having the healthiest kids (physically AND mentally) in the country!
The short answer is that I want to help kids, and I can't think of a better organization to support than Children's Wisconsin.
The longer answer is that by running or walking in this event, the funds I raise support care for kids, from life-saving cancer and heart treatments all the way to life-changing community care. Every day, Children’s is working to make Wisconsin’s kids the healthiest in the nation and my fundraising is critical to this work.
Your donation paves the way for an exciting future that:
- Drives research to eradicate disease and innovate how we care for kids today and well into the future
- Funds programs and services that help kids cope with illness, injury and trauma inside the walls of our facilities and out in the community
- Transforms the future of mental and behavioral health through early detection, increased access and reduced stigma
I can make a real difference for an organization making a real difference for kids. If you have it in your heart to help, please donate now.
