About the Foundation
The Bob Emig Foundation was started in 2004. Founder Aaron Emig, Bob’s oldest son, started the foundation to continue his father’s work in helping youth develop well-rounded lives by providing them a healthy sports experience. He loved sports—as a participant, coach and sports writer—and felt these experiences were a contributor to the successful family and professional life he built.
The focus of the Foundation evolved over the years. Our Vision is Inspiring Youth…Transforming Lives. Our Mission is promoting the well-being of youth through sports. We believe in providing opportunities for youth to enjoy the many benefits of a sports experience including having fun and developing skills that they can use throughout their lives. We encourage “going beyond the game” to allow for that learning experience.Learn More
