Briggs & Al's Run & Walk for Children's Wisconsin

We’re going virtual!

For 42 years, Briggs & Al’s Run & Walk has brought thousands of people together to run, walk and fundraise in support of the top-tier care for kids that Children’s Wisconsin provides locally, regionally and nationally. It’s one of the longest-running fundraising events in Wisconsin, and showcases the steadfast support of generous individuals, grateful families and businesses.

This year, we’re making changes to keep kids and families safe and help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our community. We invite you to participate with us virtually this summer through a series of fun challenges during the month of August. You can still form teams, participate in family-friendly activities and fundraise together.
  
Participants can look forward to:

  • Reduced registration this year and, as always, our Children’s Champions (current or former patients) participate for free
  • Register and receive a 2020 Briggs & Al’s Run & Walk event t-shirt mailed to you by September 12, 2020
  • Weekly challenges, including the opportunity to win fun prizes for your fundraising efforts
  • New fundraising and motion app to track fundraising efforts and steps!
  • Team participation and fundraising has always been an important part of Briggs & Al’s Run & Walk – we encourage you to gather your teams virtually this year and work together to fundraise for Children’s! Don’t forget to submit your backprint by 4 p.m. on August 19, 2020!
  • A special 8K training program for runners in partnership with the Badgerland Striders and Wisconsin Athletic Club – details coming soon!

We are committed to celebrating the tradition of Briggs & Al’s Run & Walk as a longstanding opportunity to bring thousands of people together to have fun and support Children's Wisconsin. This remains one of Children’s most important fundraisers with 100% of proceeds supporting the care we provide, both in the hospital and in the community.
 
This year, we need your support more than ever! Stay tuned for more information on how to register yourself and your team when our new website is live in a few weeks. 

Thank you for our generous sponsors:
