The Noah Geiwitz Legacy Foundation was founded to raise awareness about bullying and to contribute to the sports Noah loved.
On April 19, 2022, we lost Noah to suicide as a result of high school bullying. Noah was a high school junior, baseball was his love and pitching was his passion. He trained with Jason Stanford at the Stanford Baseball Academy for 8 years and was well on his way to becoming a college level pitcher. Noah dreamed of contributing to underprivileged baseball players and programs within the United States and abroad.
The Noah Geiwitz Legacy Foundation was founded by: Jason Stanford (former pitcher for the Cleveland Indians) and Lon & Heidi Emerick (Noah's parents)
At the Noah Geiwitz Legacy Foundation, we believe that baseball is more than just a game. It's a way of life. That's why we're committed to providing not only a place to play, but also the best resources and information to help players of all levels improve their skills, achieve their goals, and be the best team member they can be.
In addition to assisting young athletes with their mental health, we strive to attend to the needs of first responders as well. First responders came to our home and were nothing but professional during a time of crisis. Those first responders see tragedies like ours every day and still go back to work the next day. We want to ensure their mental health is not lost in the shuffle.
Our team at the Noah Geiwitz Legacy Foundation consists of knowledgeable and experienced baseball players and coaches who are passionate about the game but also possess the knowledge of what it takes to be a good teammate and person.
We are proud to be a part of the baseball community, and we're committed to giving back. Through partnerships with local teams and organizations, we strive to promote the growth and development of the sport we love and the mental health education that is greatly needed in our society today.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goal of purchasing property. With this property, we will build athletic facilities for many sports (not just baseball) and provide a space the whole community can utilize with walking/biking trails, fitness facility, fishing pond, etc.
Your contributions will also be put towards covering the uncovered cost of mental health services for young athletes and first responders.
