Hello! Thank you so much for coming to my Briggs & Al's Run & Walk page. This event and the mission it supports mean a lot to me and I am thrilled you took the time to stop by.
My family has been doing this walk since 2010. Kristen's nephew, Brandon was born with HLHS, where only half of his heart had developed. Children's provided life saving surgeries that rerouted/recreated his heart in order to function. Because of the resources and training opportunities for medical staff, they were able to do a life saving Berlin Heart surgery--the first for them on a HLHS heart. The Berlin Heart was a bridge to Heart Transplant for Brandon.
Today, Brandon is a healthy 11 year old who enjoys cheering on his favorite sports teams as well as playing sports himself. This October marks the 10 year anniversary of Brandon's Heart Transplant! I'm striving to give an extra big THANK YOU to Children's Hospital and pay it forward to another family in need of life saving treatments. Can you help me with my big fundraising goal this year? Every little bit helps. Thanks for your consideration!
