Welcome to My Personal Page
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. Thank you.
Why am I doing this?
The short answer is that my family wouldn't be what it is today without Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. When Jayden was diagnosed shortly before he turned 4 our whole world changed. We didn't know what the future would hold. This fall Jayden will be a 10-year brain cancer survivor. I want to do something to give back, and I can't think of a better organization to support than Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.
The longer answer is that by running or walking in this event for Children's Hospital, I know I am able to raise funds that 100% support the care provided to kids, from life-saving cancer and heart treatments all the way to life-changing community care. Jayden has been out of the hospital for a long time, but this summer he returns to have another major surgical procedure. Children's Hospital of Wisconsin continues to give all that they can to help him survive and lead a full life. At Children's, they say they believe kids deserve the best, and I know they live up to that promise -- for all kids, including Jayden.
* Children's has the No. 1 NICU in the country, able to care for the most fragile newborns with the most daunting complications.
* Children's places nurses in schools in at-risk communities so that kids get preventative, regular care right in their own backyard.
* Children's funds critical research.
* Children's is a non-profit and relies on events like this to pay for the care our kids receive.
I can make a real difference for an organization making a real difference for kids AND for my family. If you have it in your heart to help, please donate now.
