Hello Everyone, Welcome to my personal page. Thank you for being here.
Why am I doing this?
You are helping me to honor my son, Brian Oberhofer's, short life and we want to do something that helps kids, and can’t think of a better organization to support than Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. Brian was born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome. Brian would have been 35 years old this year. They have made tremendous advances in treating Children born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome. Children's WI is a center of excellence for treating this condition.
By participating on Brians's Team, we raise funds that support the care provided to 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 kids the healthiest in the nation and my support and fundraising is critical to this work.
Community investment in Wisconsin’s kids has afforded many of Children’s amazing accomplishments and has helped to pave the way for an exciting future. Here is a snapshot of what community support has enabled:
~ Translational research that improves patient care and outcomes and continues to move toward cellular therapies that will eventually prevent disease
~ Countless programs and services that support families and are not reimbursed by Medicaid or other insurance
~ Sustained extraordinary care in our heart program, leading the country with a nationally ranked, outcomes-based program
Walking as a team at Briggs & Al’s Run & Walk sends out a huge shout of support to the kids cared for by Children’s, and raises critical funds to support their care. It’s also a lot of fun, with kid-focused activities and entertainment all the way!
If you haven’t already, please help us help kids by joining our team, or help kick start fundraising with a donation of your own by clicking the donate button.
Thank you for your generous support, in helping to honor Brian and supporting such a worthy cause!
