The Briggs & Al Run/Walk for Children’s Hospital is coming up quick! This year the walk will be held on September 15th in Milwaukee and there is only 1 month left to register. A close friend of our family is getting married out-of-town that same day, so I won’t be able to walk this year — BUT can I can a favor? Will you walk for us?
Last year was so powerful and I was so proud to know that Owen’s memory was helping raise money for Children’s. The staff helped us so much during our 5 days stay … which honestly felt more like a month. In fact, Owen’s nurses still stay in touch with my family and even remembered the day he died. This is one of the only ways I know how to pay at least a little bit back. Although there is no price to the gifts and comfort we were given.
My very own Mandy Bushke has offered to be the team captain and will walk with you in our place. The shirts are white again this year and we want to paint the streets OWENGE! But I need help to do it .. since I can’t be there in person. The walk is family friendly — bring the kids! Strollers and wagons work great.

Please help to not only help Owen’s memory live on, but to also spread joy to the other families who are being serviced by Children’s Hospital of WI.
