We invite you to invest in the mission of the Bob Emig Foundation:
Promoting the well-being of youth through sports and education
We are honoring individuals and a team who exemplify the mission of the Foundation and demonstrate the qualities that it encourages, especially “going beyond the game” to make sports and education a life learning experience for youth. All honorees will be inducted into our Youth Sports Hall of Fame.
Portion of the proceeds will directly benefit the following youth organizations:
- STL Football U which uses the sport to reach kids and promote life skills. It expanded its tutoring program in the Hazelwood School District and increased the number of youth it takes to camps at colleges and universities so that the athletes can get exposure to earn scholarships to continue their education.
- KidSmart – Tools for Learning which provides schools, where students are on the Free/Reduced Lunch Program, the necessary tools (pencils, crayons, glue, etc.) to achieve educational success. Studies have shown that students that are physically active daily have better grades, are more focused and are less susceptible to diabetes, obesity and depression. Our Foundation will increase the KidSmart services by creating a playground and sports equipment division and help the overall program reach schools in Southwestern Illinois.
- We will continue to help the Jackie Joyner-Kersee Center as it develops its soccer program. It was Bob’s vision to create a quality soccer program in East St. Louis.
Thank you in advance for supporting Celebrating Leaders in Youth Sports and for investing in the future of our youth because together we are Inspiring Youth. Transforming Lives.
