Fundraiser to benefit Bethel teen fighting brain cancer

A fundraiser is being held this weekend for a Bethel teen fighting brain cancer.  14-year old Jaxxon Reed was diagnosed eight years ago with Neuroblastoma, a form of childhood brain cancer.  In order to help his family with ongoing medical bills, Champion All Star Gym is holding their 8th annual Jaxxon Reed Fundraiser at the PAL center in Danbury. 

 

Champion Owner Michele Mastrianni says the community support each year is outstanding.  She met Jaxxon's mother around the time of his diagnosis because her daughter was in a car accident, and suffers from traumatic brain injury.

 

Mastrianni is calling Jaxxon a miracle. 

 

At the event, all Champion teams as well as several local school teams will perform in exhibition.  Gift baskets will be raffled off and all the money raised will go directly to the Jaxxon Reed Fund.  Each athlete wears a tee shirt with Jaxxon’s image on it to show their support of him.

 

Admission is $10 and $5 for children at the door.  $8 and $5 for advance purchase.  It's being held at the PAL center in Danbury on Sunday from 10:30am to 1:30pm.  Doors open at 9:30am.
