Bob Toopes SYC Grant
Grant Application 2015
Bob Toopes was a long time teacher and coach with the Gahanna Lincoln school district. His dedication to education inspired the SYC walk, held every October in his memory. Bob always encouraged his students to “Show Your Class.” Thanks to the proceeds from the participants and sponsors of this walk, monies for a grant in Bob’s name have been established in cooperation with the Gahanna Parks & Recreation Foundation. It is the hope of Bob’s family and friends that these grants will help to directly enhance experiential and environmental educational experiences for students throughout Gahanna.
The Gahanna Parks & Recreation Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to educating Gahanna residents, businesses and the surrounding community about the importance of parks and recreation services, and to promote programs and facilities essential to make Gahanna a great place to live, work and play. The Foundation is committed to improving the quality of Gahanna parks and recreation services for a healthier community.
