Outing for Owen
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 we want to do something that helps kids, and can’t think of a better organization to support than Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin.
This is our 9th year as captains of Outing for Owen. We do this to honor our son, Owen who was born with a congenital heart defect called Tetralogy of Fallot. After one open heart surgery, he is a thriving 8 year old boy. We turned to the CHW in our time of need and were so lucky to have such an amazing facility so close to home. We would not be here without them! This is our way of giving back and hopefully helping others give their children the care they need and deserve.
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!
