One last push for Al's Run - Tip Cup

Hey.........the 30th installment of the Briggs & Al's Run is coming up on Saturday morning in downtown Milwaukee and there's still time to contribute to the Marquette Fans' charity drive for this most worthy of causes, named for our own Al.

Thanks to the leadership of MU_Hilltopper and the mighty generous wallet of Sir Lawrence, we've nearly equaled last year's total of $1,500.00 dollars raised.

It sure would be nice to meet or beat that number -- and we're oh-so-close.

We've gotten the big donors out of the way. We've got a few thousand readers, and we are holding out the tip cup.

There aren't any ads here, we toil for your entertainment like a smelly guy on a street corner playing a harmonica. Throw us a fiver for the effort. It's for Al and Children's Hospital.

If you are interested, please click on this link. Thanks again for your consideration.
