Hello! Thank you so much for coming to my Briggs & Al's Run & Walk page. This event and the mission it supports means a lot to me and my family. I am thrilled you took the time to stop by. Thank you.
Why am I doing this?
The short answer is that I want to do something that helps kids, and I can't think of a better organization to support than Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.
The longer answer is that on March 20, 2014 our family's personal lives changed forever. Our granddaughter Genevieve was born seven weeks premature with several health concerns. Our daughter Sarah and son-in-law Shawn embarked on a roller coaster of emotions over the next days, months and first years of Genevieve's life. Eve would spend the first month of her life fighting obstacle after obstacle in the NICU of Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. During her first year of life she would spend over 70 days in that hospital. Sarah and Shawn relied on the expertize of the doctors on staff and the support and compassion from the entire staff. For these people, we are grateful!
Every day, Children’s is working to make Wisconsin kids the healthiest in the nation and our support and fundraising is critical to this work.
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.
