Hello, and thanks for visiting my page! This is my third year participating in the event and captaining Team Wee Highlander. I appreciate you taking the time to check out our team. We know first hand how integral a role Children's Hospital plays in the lives of so many families, and want to give back a little and help other families in memory of our Honora.
For the safety of all participants, this will once again be a virtual event this year. Pandemic and vaccination conditions permitting, Drew and I would like to invite all of our team members to a cookout this fall to celebrate all of the amazing support you have given us and Children's Hospital. Details to follow.
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 Wisconsin.
The longer answer is that by running or walking in this event for Children's, I know I am raising 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
I 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.
