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

The 38th annual Briggs & Al's Run & Walk for Children's Hospital of Wisconsin will take place Saturday, Sept. 19, 2015 beginning at 10:30 a.m. at the corner of 12th Street and Wisconsin Avenue.

More than 16,000 participants are expected to line up on Marquette's campus for an 8k run and 3- and 5-mile walks to help make a difference in the lives of children from across Wisconsin. The event was founded by former Marquette basketball coach Al McGuire and has raised more than $14 million for the hospital to fund medical care, research and education.

To join the Marquette Team or any affiliated Marquette team (i.e. Res Halls), people can go to Team Member Registration website and search Marquette to sign up. Registration is due Wednesday, Sept. 2 at 5 p.m. People can still register for a non-Marquette team on the morning of the event from 8 to 10 a.m.

Questions about joining the Marquette Team should be directed to Ali Myszewski. Volunteer opportunities are also available before, during and after the run/walk. Contact Ali Myszewski, assistant director of AMU, at 8-3129 for more information.
