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.
Children’s Champions (any current or former patient of Children's) receive free registration to the event and their families are invited to a complimentary breakfast prior to the start of the race. The breakfast starts at 8:30 a.m. at the champs’ tent located on the northwest corner of 14th Street and Wisconsin Avenue (between Marquette’s Holthusen Hall and Alumni Memorial Union). Kids can also hang out with Disney princesses, Marquette athletes, Star Wars characters and participate in other activities prior to the race.
When the race finishes at Henry Maier Festival Park (Summerfest grounds), let the traffic clear up while you join the fun at our finish line celebration! Stick around and enjoy a live concert, food, drinks, children's inflatable games and activities for the whole family.
