Team participation and fundraising for Children’s Wisconsin is at the heart of Briggs & Al’s Run & Walk. Form a virtual team with your family, friends, neighbors or coworkers and get moving! Record steps, encourage one another and raise critical funds. In doing so you help us celebrate current and former patients, known lovingly as Children’s Champions.

Even better, teams of 10 or more are eligible to submit a custom backprint for your event T-shirt. Show off your design skills. Learn more below.


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.

Please note: teams cannot be created after Tuesday, August 3 at 4:00 p.m.

3. Set a fundraising goal

Last year's top fundraising team, TRICOM, raised $17,838! Aim high and communicate your goal to team members.

4. Recruit team members

Invite family, friends and co-workers to join your team. Some of our largest teams have over 300 team members!

5. Submit your team backprint design by Tuesday, August 3 at 4:00 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 Tuesday, August 3 at 4:00 p.m. Send your artwork to 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)

  • Toddler shirts (size 2-4) are not customized

NOTE: Some of you will have people join your team after the Tuesday, August 3, 4 p.m. deadline. Those team members will receive their participation t-shirt, without the team backprint, in the mail.

6. Team boxes will be sent to team captains in the mail this year

In efforts to have all team boxes shipped and to team captains by August 18, all backprints must be submitted by Tuesday, August 3 at 4:00 p.m.

There will be no in-person pick up this year, all team boxes will be shipped to the team captain for distribution to team members.

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 $250 so individuals can qualify for prizes!. Registration fees only cover the cost of the event; it's your fundraising that helps provide care to kids!
