About the Foundation
The Bob Emig Foundation, a nonprofit 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization, was started in 2004. Founder Aaron Emig, Bob’s oldest son, created 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.
Promoting the well-being of youth
through sports and education
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
