Briggs & Al's Run & Walk

Saturday, September 15, 2018

Briggs & Al's Run & Walk is a Milwaukee tradition and a critical fundraiser for Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. For over 40 years, thousands of people have come together to walk or run in support of a child they love, connect with our mission and celebrate the kids we serve. 100% of the funds raised by participants directly support programs and services that prevent and ease the suffering of children.
