Welcome to Leo's Lions! We hope you're able to support us in raising funds for Children's Wisconsin and all of the lifesaving care they provide to kids and their families!
Our best buddy and Children's Champion, Leo, was born with Congenital Heart Disease and has been receiving the most expert, compassionate care at Children's Hospital ever since, including a successful heart procedure in January. During a time filled with extreme anxiety, in unfamiliar territory as brand new parents, his Care Team eased our fears with the most patient, responsive, and skilled care we could have imagined. We are so grateful to all of them. Leo will continue to receive care at Children's Hospital and Herma Heart Institute throughout his childhood, as will thousands of other kids and families who need and deserve the most medically advanced and loving care. Please help us support their mission by making a donation today!
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 Wisconsin.
The longer answer is that by running or walking in this event for Children’s, we can raise funds that support the care provided to kids, from life-saving cancer and heart treatments all the way to life-changing community care. Every day, Children’s is working to make Wisconsin kids the healthiest in the nation and my support and fundraising is critical to this work.
Community investment in Wisconsin’s kids has afforded many of Children’s amazing accomplishments and has helped to pave the way for an exciting future. Here is a snapshot of what community support has enabled:
~ Translational research that improves patient care and outcomes and continues to move toward cellular therapies that will eventually prevent disease
~ Countless programs and services that support families and are not reimbursed by Medicaid or other insurance
~ Sustained extraordinary care in our heart program, leading the country with a nationally ranked, outcomes-based program
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, and raises critical funds to support their care. It’s also a lot of fun, with kid-focused activities and entertainment all the way!
