Welcome to our team page!
This will be our 2nd year walking in this amazing event! We hold Children's dear to our heart because of the amazing care we witnessed with Kenna. We firmly believe she is with us today because of them! Kenna was born early via emergency c-section and faught her way through many hurdles. Because of the CICU team of doctors and nurses (Angels) she made strides every day. The NICU doctors, nurses, and therapists had Kenna's best intentions when it came to her health and well being. After 31 days at Children's, we brought our miracly girl home. Since there she has been cleared by her Cardiologist as her heart healed itself and operates normal. Her Neurologist removed her from all seizure meds and we have not seen any signs that she has had any. She just "graduated" from Shawano County's Birth-Three program as they see no need to continue therapy since shes right with kids her age for development.
So our little fighter is here and shes PERFECT! All thanks to this amazing hospital. We will always do what we can for this Hospital, as they gave us our girl to keep!
Please join our team, donate, or share please. EVERY little bit helps, from $1-$1000, it makes no difference!

Why are we doing this?
The short answer is that we want to do something that helps kids, and 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, we can 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. 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!
