We are deeply saddened to share with our community that Eli Wolff passed away on April 4th.
Eli was many things to the PYD community over the years: a Board Member, a staff member, a trusted and valued community partner, and – above all – a mentor and friend.
He was a powerful advocate for mentoring, and is responsible for January 17th being recognized as International Day of Mentoring each year. A former Paralympian, he believed strongly in the transformative power of sports for people with disabilities.
Eli was an inductee into the Susan M. Daniels Disability Mentoring Hall of Fame, and you can read more of his accomplishments on his inductee page.
If you have any favorite memories of Eli, Eli’s family is collecting tributes to Eli and memories here.
