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 I want to do something that helps kids like mine, and I can't think of a better organization to support than Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.
The longer answer is complicated and full of a lot of heartbreak. As almost everyone knows, my sweet little warrior gained his angel wings on July 1, 2019 after one heck of a fight against a progressive brain disorder. From the day he was born until the day he died, Asher was surrounded by and supported by Children's. Children's was actually with us from my 20 week ultrasound on. They knew Asher before Asher was even here.
Our life was not easy, but it was made easier by Children's. The level of care and support we received from them was unimaginable and I can only hope that every mother and baby to come after us receives that same care. That won't happen without donors like you.
This year's walk will happen just days before what would have been Asher's 2nd birthday. I can't think of a better way to celebrate our Mr. Guy than to walk among people who know just how important CHW is.
Whether $1, $10, $100 or $1000, your donation makes a difference in kid's lives, kids just like Asher. Thank you for considering making a gift or joining us in the walk.
