Memorial Information for David Levin

May 15th, 2017


It is with deep sadness that I inform you that Ignite President and longtime volunteer David Levin has passed away.

For more than 20 years, Ignite has been a huge part of David’s life. Every week you would see him at WHQ with a smile and a willingness to do what it takes to give “that lesson”.

He also served on the Board of Directors and, for the past several years, as our Board President. He took that role as the board president seriously; leading us to create and implement a strategic plan; working to ensure that the relationship with Eldora Mountain Resort is strong and will continue to flourish and develop for years to come; and working tirelessly to ensure that Ignite has the resources to execute our mission effectively.

In all of my years of working in nonprofits, I have met thousands of individuals with a passion and dedication for the work they do — and in my book — Ignite volunteers are the cream of the crop and David exemplified an Ignite volunteer.

I am humbled and honored to have had the opportunity to work with David — his passion and dedication to Ignite volunteers and students always shone brightly. He will be missed.

The family will have a memorial this Thursday, May 18th at 5:45 p.m. at the Boulder Jewish Community Center, 6007 Oreg Ave, Boulder, CO, 80303 (off Arapahoe and Cherryvale). Please join us in honoring David.

With Gratitude,

Carol Nickell
Executive Director of Ignite

Year-End Letter from Board President

April 9th, 2016

Dear Ignite Family,

The 42nd season of Ignite Adaptive Sports is over and Spring is in full bloom down in Boulder. I hope you all enjoyed this ski season as much as I did. I was delighted to participate in the extra day for deaf students to close out the season. Twenty volunteers showed up April 2nd to host 12 deaf children while many of their parents looked on in delight. The day was warm and sunny and with some early morning coaching by Rilee Mielecki on sign language, we were off on a wonderful day of fun in the sun. The kids and parents were all very happy with the day’s lessons. Two of the moms said they would be back next season as volunteers. Hopefully we’ll have some training clinics on the use of ASL (American sign language) next year for the addition of deaf students to our program.

I want to give a huge expression of gratitude to all of our dedicated volunteers and our superb staff who made this season a great success. I was fortunate to work with many of our newer volunteers and juniors by coming up on weekends this year. The spirit and energy of these volunteers has energized our program in an exciting way. Of course I was also delighted to work with our long time instructors who return year after year to provide the best instruction available to the disabled community.

Although the Ignite ski season is over, there are still activities to come. A year-end party on April 30, a summer picnic in August, and hopefully a fall Gala Event in September are all on the schedule. I look forward to seeing most of you at these events and of course back again in the fall for another great season up at Eldora Mountain Resort.

Finally I want to thank EMR and in particular the helpful lifties who made our forty-second season possible. We could not have provided our excellent services without them.

Warmest regards for a great summer.

David Levin, President
Ignite Adaptive Sports at Eldora Mountain Resort
