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 fundraising teams 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.
Four years and three surgeries later and our Dominic is happy, more energetic than ever and is enthusiastic about life! He starts 4K in the fall, adores his little sister and is a complete joy to be around. There simply aren't enough hours in the day for him to do everything he wants to do. He loves music and sings beautifully. Right now his favorite songs are from The Greatest Showman and he belts them out at the top of his lungs.
If you were to ask Dominic about his heart, he will tell you that his doctor says he is doing GREAT and happily lift his shirt to proudly reveal his "zipline". We are optimistic about the future of care for children born with major heart defects like Dominic's HLHS, but Dominic's reality includes many daily medications and many visits to the specialists in Milwaukee. We are grateful to God for this hospital and the people who work there. We are also grateful to all of those who support us with their prayers and Children's Hospital of Wisconsin with their donations.
- 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!
