We are running this race in memory of our beautiful son Jaxon Taylor Baumgard. He passed away at age 5 after a 3 year battle with Ewing’s Sarcoma. He won his battle not the way we wanted but he’s home with God now and being able to enjoy being a kid! Jaxons wish was to go the Disney and we stayed at this amazing place during our wish trip. It easily became his favorite place in the world! He was all smiles and cried when we had to leave. He would watch videos and flip through pictures of our time here daily. Right before he passed away on his 5th birthday we brought him back here for one last visit together as a family and he went from not walking to standing up out of his wheel chair and running around for one more amazing day of enjoying this place. It means so much to our family to help a place that helps families like us feel normal and not scared for one week of their life. You don’t pay for a single thing while you are here, they actually tell you that there is no need to carry a purse or wallet around with you because everything is taken care of. This place was a blessing to ya and will always hold a place in our heart as Jaxons most favorite place! Thank you all for viewing and always supporting! #JaxonsBattleisMyBattle Jeremiah 29:11
We love you and miss you so much our sweet perfect baby boy
We’re raising money for Give Kids The World Village!
This nonprofit “storybook” resort provides free vacations to critically ill children and their families – vacations that create happiness and hope when these families need it most.
For one week, children and families can set aside doctor appointments and medical treatments to laugh, play and simply spend time together – at the Village and at Central Florida’s world-class theme parks.
