A dream trip turned into reality for a Naperville kid.

Jaxon Kernkamp and his family went to Wrigley Field for a Cubs game. The six-year-old saw some batting practice and even got a couple of baseballs from the opposing team.

Who Made it Happen?

Jaxon made it to the friendly confines thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation who fulfills the wishes of kids who have battled critical illnesses. The Highlands Elementary School student was diagnosed in 2018 with a Wilms tumor.
