Milwaukee, WI, November 8, 2012:  On Saturday, September 15, 2012, Tricom Funding participated in the 35th Annual Brigg’s & Al’s Run & Walk for Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, WI. This annual charity walk consists of a three or five-mile walk or a five-mile run, and over the years has raised over $14 million in support of Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. This year, the Tricom Funding staff of 46 employees recruited friends, family members and associates for a total of 429 Tricom Funding team members. 
 
Tricom Funding matches dollar for dollar the first $20,000 in pledges and donates $20 for every registration under the Tricom team. This year, The Tricom Funding Team was named the Top Pledgeraising Team, raising a total of $42,771.86.
 
For the last 16 years, Tricom Funding has been an active sponsor and participant in the annual Briggs & Al’s Run and Walk for Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. Tricom started out as a Water Station sponsor, then moved to Bib sponsor and have recently become a Team sponsor. Since 1996, Tricom Funding has had 9,028 total team members and raised $621,131.20 for the event.
 
Over the years, this has become a deeply personal event for many of the Tricom Funding staff. Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin is ranked one of the best children’s hospitals in the nation, and many staff members have either had their own personal experiences with the amazing work Children’s Hospital does, or know someone who has. 
 
Each year, the names and signatures of children who are facing their own challenges at Children’s Hospital are included on the back of the Tricom Funding team event t-shirts. Also included are the names and signatures of their “angels.” These are children who are no longer with them, but who continue to inspire the team year after year. Tricom Funding walks in honor of these children and of all the other children and their families who come to Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin for treatment, care and support.
