Welcome to the MARQUETTE UNIVERSITY team page! Teams have a huge impact on the success of Briggs & Al’s Run & Walk and we are glad you are here!
Did you know that Marquette University is a major sponsor of this event and the race is partially named after legendary former Marquette Men's Basketball coach Al McGuire?
By joining this team, you are taking part in a great tradition that so many of our students, staff and alumni participate in each year.
Why are we doing this?
The short answer is that we want to do something that helps kids, and can’t think of a better organization to support than Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin.
The longer answer is that by running or walking in this event for Children’s Hospital, we can raise funds that 100% support the care provided to kids, from life-saving cancer and heart treatments all the way to life-changing community care. At Children’s, they say they believe kids deserve the best, and they live up to that promise — for all kids.
Time and money is precious and we owe it to ourselves to be thoughtful about causes we support.
- Children’s has the No. 1 NICU in the country, able to care for the most fragile newborns with the most daunting complications.
- Children’s places nurses in schools in at-risk communities so that kids get preventative, regular care right in their own backyard.
- Children’s funds ground-breaking research.
- Children’s is a non-profit and relies on events like this one to pay for the level of care our kids receive.
Walking as a team at Briggs & Al’s Run & Walk sends out a huge shout of support to the kids cared for by Children’s Hospital, and raises critical funds to support their care. It’s also a lot of fun, with kid-focused activities and entertainment all the way!
