"Al McGuire wanted to do something for the kids of Children’s 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, Briggs & Al’s Run & Walk has been a Milwaukee tradition for more than 40 years."
Peggy Troy, president and CEO of Children’s Wisconsin, sat down with the Marquette in Milwaukee podcast to discuss the Briggs & Al’s Run & Walk, its profound impact on Children's Wisconsin and the city of Milwaukee, and the lasting legacy of Al McGuire.
