IGNITE ADAPTIVE SPORTS
Colorado Gives Day – Donate Today to Have Your Gift Increased!
If you have been thinking about making a donation to Ignite Adaptive Sports, please consider doing so today. We are participating in Colorado Gives Day on December 10, 2013 through www.ColoradoGives.org. 100% of every donation will go directly to Ignite (no processing fees) and all donations given that day will be increased by the First Bank Incentive Fund. This will stretch donation dollars even further to help cover such costs as scholarships, liability insurance, certification reimbursements, leader trainings, equipment maintenance, etc.
Ignite does not turn anyone away based on a disability or ability to pay, and we need your help to do this. Donations for Colorado Gives Day can be given online at www.ColoradoGives.org and can be pre-scheduled today. Thank you for helping us provide affordable, accessible and therapeutic snowsports opportunities to our local community.
Please read more about the impact of your donation and what your gift will help fund.
The mission of Ignite Adaptive Sports is to provide integrated recreational opportunities for people with disabilities that will foster independence through the acquisition of lifetime skills. Located at the beautiful Eldora Mountain Resort, Ignite Adaptive Sports provides safe, fun and affordable instruction in alpine and cross-country skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing to people with cognitive and physical disabilities to enhance their quality of life. Our instructors are passionate and knowledgeable in accommodating students with disabilities who require unique teaching methods and/or adaptive equipment. In 1975, our program began with a small group of volunteers and ten disabled students. Since then, we’ve grown into a 200+ person volunteer force that collectively works approximately 20,000 hours per year, providing over 1,000 individual lessons to 200+ people per year. Outdoor sports enthusiasts of all ages and disabilities are welcome to take part in our nationally recognized program. We invite you to watch a video (including a great clip from NBC’s Today Show) or check out the image gallery to see Ignite in action!
