JJ and Mr B
Welcome to our team page! Teams have a huge impact on the success of Briggs & Al’s Run & Walk and we are glad you are here!
Why are we doing this?
The short answer is that my family wouldn't be what it is today without Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. When Jayden was diagnosed shortly before he turned 4 our whole world changed. We didn't know what the future would hold. This fall Jayden will be a 10-year brain cancer survivor. I want to do something to give back, and I can't think of a better organization to support than Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.
The longer answer is that by running or walking in this event for Children's Hospital, I know I am able to raise funds that 100% support the care provided to kids, from life-saving cancer and heart treatments all the way to life-changing community care. Jayden has been out of the hospital for a long time, but this summer he returns to have another major surgical procedure. Children's Hospital of Wisconsin continues to give all that they can to help him survive and lead a full life. At Children's, they say they believe kids deserve the best, and I know they live up to that promise -- for all kids, including Jayden.
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!
