Partnerships with Children's Hospital by Marquette in Milwaukee published on 2019-05-28T17:41:22Z Al McGuire wanted to do something for the kids of Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. The legendary Marquette coach felt a special connection to the children and families that were receiving care at the local hospital. So he started a race to benefit the hospital that started at Marquette’s campus and runs through downtown Milwaukee. Today, Brigg’s and Al’s Walk and Run has been a Milwaukee tradition for more than 40 years. Each year, thousands of participants line up on Wisconsin Avenue on Marquette University’s campus to walk or run in support of Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. The event is a critical fundraiser for Children’s but it’s also a day for families and the community to come together to support and celebrate the children in their lives. Today, we’ll find out why Brigg’s and Al’s Walk and Run is named for the legendary Marquette figure, how Marquette and Children’s have worked together over the years, and what the race means to Milwaukee.
