Founded in 2012 by Sherri Bonnallie GPTOY is in our 5th year, not enough words can describe how I feel about everyone who has been a part of an idea, that started small by a mother and son. The Logo was designed by both myself and son (Devon Rowe) in 2012. We both figured we were out in the Community helping programs that help youth stay active and succeed in programs anyway, so why not bring everyone together for One Day in the Park to allow Our Community to show Youth & Families what is available to them in our Community throughout Hamilton. Since then my family and many old and new friends have supported the idea and gather on the day too help make what GPTOY is today. Even during the time of great Loss of a family member (Marley Rowe) murdered Downtown Hamilton on New Years Day 2014 we have all found the strength to continue our efforts by changing a negative and keeping the positive message and efforts that GPTOY focused on what a community can do as ONE. Give Proof to Our Youth helps youth stay educated and positively focused on their future by sharing resources from our Community. Programs already set in place for advancement in our youth's endeavors throughout Hamilton Ontario. Every year one program is chosen to receive funds from Our Day in the Park Held Once a Year as an Event/Fundraiser. We will continue to help as many youth succeed in their efforts in moving forward in a positive direction.
