Al’s Run & Walk
Thousands of people packed downtown streets for a good cause on Saturday.
The 35th annual Briggs & Al’s Run & Walk for Children’s Hospital drew thousands of people to downtown Milwaukee on Saturday morning. The event draws its name from sponsor Briggs & Stratton and event founder and Marquette University coaching legend Al McGuire. In 2011, there were a reported 12,800 participants, and with the nice weather on Saturday, it felt like that total could have easily been surpassed. Over its 35 years the event has raised over $13 million dollars.
Commonly referred to as simply “Al’s Run”, the event showcases how public streets can easily be temporarily transformed into fun and exciting places.
