Gwinnett-based franchise, Kids 'R' Kids International, went up, up and away during April of 2015's Gwinnett March of Dimes three-mile walk -- by way of the corporate hot air balloon. The iconic balloon, piloted by Kids 'R' Kids International CEO, David Vinson, was one of many ways the early childhood education provider served as the presenting sponsor.

Duluth-based since 1985, Kids 'R' Kids International, Inc. has supported March of Dimes through sponsorships, fundraising and event participation for nearly 15 years, resulting in nearly $210,000 donated to the organization.

"We support March of Dimes because they too believe that every child deserves the opportunity to grow physically, emotionally, socially and intellectually," said David Vinson, president and CEO of Kids 'R' Kids International, Inc. "Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academies is proud to support an organization that shares a commitment to the health and wellbeing to children in our community".

More than 40 corporate employees from Kids 'R' Kids International participated in the walk. All proceeds from the event supported March of Dimes research and programs that help babies begin healthy lives. Also, the funds provide assistance for families with infants in newborn intensive care.

Jaxon, of Rome, Ga., was born with a rare disability that has left him with no left leg and a shortened right leg and right arm. Duluth-based Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academies CEO David Vinson was so touched by Jaxon Lewis’ story that he pledged to cover the 9-year-old boy’s prosthetic limbs after Medicaid coverage was cancelled. Vinson sweetened the deal with an extra surprise, a trip to Walt Disney World.

Jaxon was awaiting his new limbs when his Medicaid coverage suddenly was cancelled in March, leaving his new limbs waiting for him in Atlanta. His insurance ended earlier this year when his stepfather’s income exceeded the allowable amount. While half of the cost has been raised from fundraisers and donations, the family was not gaining much traction in attaining the remaining amount needed.

Upon seeing Jaxon’s story on the local news, Vinson donated $70,000 to cover the remaining cost of Jaxon’s prosthetics. Vinson presented a check to the 9-year-old and his family on Friday, Oct. 16, along with a surprise trip to Walt Disney World. Jaxon and his family will be flown to Disney on the company's private jet and picked up by Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Orlando.
