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?
I am doing this to honor my late son, Brian Oberhofer's short life. Brian lived for 4 short days. He was born with hypo plastic left heart syndrome which means that his left ventrical did not form properly. His hear was not able to pump blood around his body once his mitral valve closed. All funds raised by Brian's Team will benefit the Herma Heart Institute of Children's Wisconsin to help other children born with heart defects. The Herma Heart Institue is on of the nation's leading pediatric heart institutes and the largest in Wisconsin.
The longer answer is that by running or walking in this event, the funds we 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
We 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.
With heart felt appreciation, Thank you!
