Scottsdale baby wins college funds at GCU game

Posted

A Scottsdale baby beat out five competitors to win a diaper derby race during halftime of Grand Canyon University’s men’s basketball game Saturday, Nov. 30.

Scottsdale resident and 12-month-old Jaxon Sherman won a $529 Arizona College Saving Account from AZ529, a state-sponsored 529 plan designed to give parents, grandparents or future students an opportunity to save for educational expenses in a tax-deferred manner, according to a press release.

A diaper derby is a race where babies crawl from one parent or family member to the next, racing against other babies. In this case, the race was from just past the 3-point line to a little past half-court.

The winning funds can be used on tuition and college fees; room and board; books and supplies; computers; related college expenses; accredited postsecondary education; vocational and trade schools; certificate programs; community colleges; four-year universities; graduate programs; and any national or international schools.

Jax’s race name was “Jax Turbo 4000,” a release states. His parents say he enjoys playing with cars, eating veggie straws, fig bars and goldfish when he’s not out-crawling other babies on the court.
