About The Dax Foundation

Our Mission 

To help the families and children of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and other families in need.

The DAX Foundation met the initial goal of running St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for ONE day in honor of Dax by raising 1.6 million dollars!!!   

 

 

The DAX Foundation's Objectives: 

 

Sponsor the children of Camp HOPE: The DAX Foundation sends 150 campers to Camp Hope. Camp Hope is a week long summer camp for children ages 5-18 who have been diagnosed with cancer or other blood disorders. The campers are allowed to participate in activities that “normal” children can while constantly being monitored by medical professionals.

 

Create community for St. Jude families:  The Dax Foundation has pledged to raise $1 Million to build a "DAX Wing" in Peoria's NEW Ronald McDonald House. The DAX Wing will be specially designed for children with compromised immune systems who are visiting Peoria for medical treatment. The wing is lined with HERO ROOM's uniquely designed to encourage and uplift families who experiencing medical difficulties with their children. 

 

Spread hope with HOPE WEEK: The foundation will work with educators and schools all across the country to fill the hallways with HOPE! These events will include but are not limited to week long coin wars in high schools, putting up hearts in the hallways in elementary schools, hosting a bike-a-thon at an early childhood education facility and much more. The funds raise help us fund Camp Hope!
