Welcome to Declan's team page! Teams have a huge impact on the success of Briggs & Al’s Run & Walk and we are glad you are here!
Declan spent 18 days in the NICU after he was born. He got the absolute best care to ensure he was on the path to success and met all of his goals to be able to come home. The doctors, nurses and therapists all showed Declan and us incredible compassion and care throughout our stay. We felt great relief knowing he was being shown so much love and expert care 24/7. Declan grew big and strong before our eyes, all thanks to the NICU team at Children's.
Declan continues to attend Occupational and Physical Therapy each once a week at Children's now. He also sees our awesome neurologist in the DREAM clinic a few times each year. All of his follow up care at Children's is helping to make sure Declan meets all of his developmental milestones and continue to grow stronger each day. His therapists treat us like family and work so hard to help Declan meet his goals. They are just as invested as we are in his success and love celebrating his journey with us. We cannot say thank you enough for the amazing care Declan gets at Children's.
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!
