NOW: Briggs & Al’s Run and Walk raises nearly $1M for Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin


MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The weather was perfect for families to lace up their running shoes for a big event.

Runners hit the streets for the Briggs and Al's Run and Walk for Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.

More than 10,000 participants took part on Saturday. Many were past and current patients at the hospital.

The course took participants from the Marquette campus to the Summerfest grounds.

"With the glorious day, beautiful weather, it's a wonderful time for families to come out," said Peggy Troy with Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. There's so much going on down at Summerfest at the end of the race so we consider this one of the best family days in Milwaukee."

In the last 41 years, the event has raised more than $21 million that has benefitted the thousands of children and families who are served every year by Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.

This year's fundraising goal is $1 million.

My mom ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) symptoms started out with a "foot drop" on her left foot. From there her left leg lost all muscle tone and all the entire left leg muscles was almost gone. Also her fingers and thumbs "contract" at times. Left arm is losing muscle tone too,she have been suffering from amyotrophic laterals sclerosis (ALS) disease for the last seven years and had constant pain which really get us worried, especially in her knees, the only treatment for this ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) is natural organic treatments honestly ,totalcureherbsfoundation .c om has the perfect herbal remedy to all the Motor Neuron Disease including ALS.

I was diagnosed with ALS(Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) last year. My symptoms are muscle loss tingling across the top part of my back like bugs crawling. My speech is slurring and I’m drooling and fingers and toes drawling up lost a lot of weight. I can’t use my hands they are to weak and I can’t button my pants and using my hands and arms wears me out. When I read the information on different site online, I learnt that ALS can be reversed with Best Health Herbal Centre (ww w. besthealthherbalcentre. c om) ALS HERBAL REMEDY TREATMENT, so i decided to give it a try. May this year I purchased 2 bottles of ALS herbal remedy from Best Health Herbal Centre. The treatment worked very effectively for my ALS, most of my severe symptoms simply vanished within 7 weeks of usage. Am currently living a normal life.
