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! We were still one of the top 10 fundraisers last year! WOW.
Why are we doing this??
Because of Dominic and every other kid out there that needs a place where God can work his miracles...a place like Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.
If I were asked to describe Dominic is three words, I would say "Dominic loves life"! He loves tractors and farms and construction equipment and the Podnar cabin and the Nejedlo boat. He is lucky that both of his grandpas have 4-wheelers! He loves libraries and playgrounds and sandboxes and the beach. He loves his mommy and daddy and his cousins and his aunties and uncles and Father Jim at church. He especially loves his little sister, Clare. He told me earlier this spring that he is happy there is someone else in the wagon with him now. He doesn't like going to bed too early, eating much, or doctor visits that hurt. In the past year he had some pretty amazing things happen to him. Besides becoming a big brother, he was chosen as the mascot for the first ever American Heart Association Heart/Stroke Ball in the Fox Cities. His comment on that black tie night: "Where's the ball????" He is engaging in his personality and thrilled to show off his newly learned summer saults. And, during all of that, we wish we could forget...
...that he still has only half of a working heart. His third surgery is on June 15th and he needs more miracles. Please help us in our fundraising efforts for this great cause. We believe that God has big plans for Dominic.
