Hello! Welcome to my Briggs & Al's Run & Walk fundraising 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 help kids, and I can't think of a better organization to support than Children's Wisconsin.
I currently work for Children's Wisconsin as a Child Welfare Case Manager. This means that I case manage ongoing cases through the Department of Milwaukee Child Protective Services. Yes, Children's Wisconsin works alongside DMCPS to ensure that children are safe from abuse and neglect, and that families are being constantly supported. I am studying to become a Child and Adolescent therapist with goals of working as a therapist at Children's Wisconsin. Needless to say, Children's means so much to me, including the children that they continue to serve every single day.
The longer answer is that by running or walking in this event, the funds I raise support care for 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’s kids the healthiest in the nation and my fundraising is critical to this work.
Your donation paves the way for an exciting future that:
- Drives research to eradicate disease and innovate how we care for kids today and well into the future
- Funds programs and services that help kids cope with illness, injury and trauma inside the walls of our facilities and out in the community
- Transforms the future of mental and behavioral health through early detection, increased access and reduced stigma
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.
