The EM5 Fly Foundation

The EM5 Fly Foundation was created to honor the short life and big heart of 15 year-old Evan Melau, who was taken from this earthly world way too soon. The mission of this foundation is simple: help others, create joy. Or as Evan would say, “spread it around!” EM5 achieves this by raising funds that assist families, children, teenagers and student athletes in the form of events, monetary donations, gift cards, holiday gift baskets, scholarships, and more.
