Welcome from the President & Board Chairman!
If you drive through life with your heart, great things will happen. My father, Joe Nuxhall, was someone who used this philosophy as a moral compass in his life. And now, nearly 15 years removed from his death, it’s amazing to see that his heart is still driving the work that we are doing at The Nuxhall Foundation.
My Dad had a unique way of making everyone he met feel special. No matter who he encountered, he made them feel like a major leaguer. That, I feel, is the legacy that we are carrying forward in his name. At The Nuxhall Foundation, we are making sure that everyone we serve experiences that special sense of belonging that builds and sustains community and our civic life.
That’s why you’ll find a common thread throughout every initiative we pursue as a foundation: service to others. Thousands of special needs athletes and their families are served with unparalleled opportunities for recreation at The Joe Nuxhall Miracle League Fields. Through the years, generations of young minds have been shaped to know that character in leadership matters through The Joe Nuxhall Character Education Fund. And the dreams of countless student-athletes in our region have been realized thanks to the generosity of The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Scholarship.
There is one additional common theme woven throughout all of these initiatives: and that is the support of wonderful teammates like you.
Believe me—Dad would be overwhelmed with joy and emotion if he were here to see the work that you are helping us do throughout the community that he loved. When I work at the Miracle League Fields with Dad’s face beaming down from the image of him at our facility, I am overwhelmed by that same sense of awe and appreciation for what we’ve been able to do together.
And this is just the introduction to a beautiful story we are writing together in the decades to come for The Nuxhall Foundation.
On behalf of a grateful son and a thankful family, thank you for the difference you’ve made in our journey.
