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 working for Children's as a PICU nurse has given me the ability to see first hand the amazing work we do day in and day out as an organization to strive for our goal of making Wisconsin's kids the healthiest in the nation. Children's also saved the life of my best friend 4 years ago when she battled AML (and won).
While I am unable to walk this year in this event due to work scheduling, 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 our 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.
