Teams

It is because of the many wonderful teams that support Children's Hospital of Wisconsin through Briggs & Al's Run & Walk each year that we have been able to contribute so much to the care of kids. Our committed families and corporate teams know that registration fees only cover the cost of the event — fundraising helps provide care to kids. We are deeply grateful to all our teams and encourage you to form your own to make the difference in the life of a child.
 

FORMING A TEAM IS EASY

 
1. Choose a team name

 
2. Register as the team captain

Register online by choosing "form a team" from the three options. Once you have created your team, email friends and family through your participant center asking them to join you.

 
3. Set a fundraising goal

Last year's top fundraising team, Tricom, raised more than $37,000. Aim high and communicate your goal to team members.

 
4. Recruit team members

Invite family, friends and co-workers to join your team. Team Briggs had over 300 team members in 2017.

 
5. Submit your team t-shirt design by Wednesday, Aug. 29 at 5:00 p.m.

Teams with 10 or more members qualify to have their own team design printed on the back of their event t-shirt free of charge. Your artwork MUST be received by Wednesday, Aug. 29 at 5:00 p.m. Send your artwork to alsrunbackprint@chw.org and include your team name in the email subject line. Artwork must meet the following guidelines:

  • Black-and-white (no color) electronic artwork only. (PDF, TIFF or JPEG; minimum resolution of 200 dpi)
  • Maximum imprint area is 9 inches wide by 11 inches high for teams with a mix of adults and children. Adult-only teams have a maximum imprint area of 12 inches by 12 inches.
  • Toddler shirts (size 2-4) are not customized

NOTE: Some of you will have people join your team after Wednesday, Aug. 29 at 5:00 p.m. Those team members will need to pick up their t-shirt without the team design on the back on race day at the registration tent. We are sorry, we can't make any exceptions due to printer guidelines. No teams will be able to be formed after the team deadline.

Any run and walk participant registering after Wednesday, Aug. 29 at 5:00 p.m. will be able to pick up their event t-shirt at the registration table on 16th Street and Wisconsin Avenue on the morning of the event.

 
6. Pick up team race packets

Team packet pickup will be on Friday, September 7, 12 p.m. - 6 p.m., and Saturday, September 8, 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. at the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin Warehouse (6740 W. Washington Avenue, West Allis, WI 53214). If you cannot pick up your packets during this time, you will need to pick them up the day of the race at the information tent.

 
7. Fundraise

The teams that support our kids through Briggs & Al's Run & Walk are a lifeline for the children we serve; 100% of the funds you raise go directly to fund care for kids. We ask all team members to raise at least $100. Registration fees only cover the cost of the event; it's your fundraising that helps provide care to kids!
