Rally for Aly
Welcome to Rally for Aly's team page! 2017 marks our 13th year. Over the past 12 years, we’ve raised nearly $125,000 for Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin and the Herma Heart Center. We appreciate your continued support.
Alyssa Ann Pape Endowment Fund
In 2015, we introduced the Alyssa Ann Pape Endowment Fund. Supporters, like you, helped us raise more than $15,000 last year to help fund the endowment and other initiatives at the Herma Heart Center and Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. Please continue to select this fund when making a donation, ensuring that our commitment to the Herma Heart Center will live on for years to come in Alyssa’s memory.
As an infant, ‘Aly’ was diagnosed with Marfan Syndrome, a genetic connective tissue disorder that affects the heart, aorta, eyes and skeletal system, and received frequent care at CHW. In early 2005, she was found to have Loeys-Dietz, a disorder closely related to Marfan syndrome, that was named by doctors that very year. At 16, Aly suffered an aortic aneurysm that took her life. Your support is needed so we can continue to honor her amazing spirit and help Children’s Hospital provide kids with the same first class care Aly received.
CHW is a Gem in our Community
By running or walking in this event for Children’s Hospital, we can raise critical funds, 100% of which support the care provided to kids, from life-saving cancer and heart treatments all the way to life-changing community care. At Children’s, they say they believe kids deserve the best, and they live up to that promise — for all kids.
Time and money is precious and we owe it to ourselves to be thoughtful about causes we support.
- Children’s has the No. 1 NICU in the country, able to care for the most fragile newborns with the most daunting complications.
- Children’s places nurses in schools in at-risk communities so that kids get preventative, regular care right in their own backyard.
- Children’s funds ground-breaking research.
- Children’s is a non-profit and relies on events like this one to pay for the level of care our kids receive.
Walking as a team at Briggs & Al’s Run & Walk sends out a huge shout of support to the kids cared for by Children’s Hospital, and raises critical funds to support their care. It’s also a lot of fun, with kid-focused activities and entertainment all the way!
