Kayleigh's Crew walks to support Children's
In January of 2005, a CT scan revealed a large tumor on eight-month-old Kayleigh’s liver, along with several other small tumor clusters. Kayleigh’s care team at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin quickly began treatment but a few months later she was re-admitted to the hospital because the tumors were not responding to treatment and instead continued to grow.
Kayleigh's doctors and nurses applied what information and research tools were available at the time, but despite their best efforts, Kayleigh lost her battle in April that year — just shy of her first birthday.
Over the last 13 years, Kayleigh’s family and friends have gathered as the Kayleigh's Crew team at Briggs & Al’s Run & Walk and raise funds that support research of vascular anomalies like Kayleigh's. Their team's fundraising and generous donations have made a tremendous impact on the care Children’s provides to kids like Kayleigh.
Kayleigh’s Crew joins the thousands of other participants who attend Briggs & Al’s Run & Walk each year. And like many of the runners and walkers that will descend on downtown Milwaukee on September 15, their team’s story is deeply connected to Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin.
Briggs & Al’s Run & Walk is one of Children’s most important fundraising events, raising critical funds that allow us to help families like Kayleigh's during their most difficult days.
