Their Opportunity

Their Opportunity was Co-founded by Randy Gill. At a professional development retreat over four years ago Randy was challenged by a presenter to do “more”. After self-reflection and consultation with individuals who are part of Randy’s core influencers, he identified just what that “more” is. Tapping into his roots of strong community and an avid sports (hockey…one time Junior player and now OMHA Referee and High School hockey coach) enthusiast, Randy realized that there are significant barriers for children to enter into sporting activities. He also realized that he needed to do more than just provide access to resources for kids – he wanted to build stronger communities. As a result, recipients of Their Opportunity funds are required to “pay-it-forward” through community service and engagement. The pay-it-forward model builds on the team-work skills that the children gain in their sporting activities.

During 2007 to 2010, Randy along with his brother Rob (co-founder) and Alvin Watkins (Treasurer) and Toni Cranmer (Secretary) has organized a national board of family and friends to see his vision to fruition. Their Opportunity funded its first family on Father’s Day 2010. Four young girls, being raised by a single father on disability, were sponsored so that they could participate in an aquatics program. Since then they have also sponsored other families.

Mission Statement
Their Opportunity exists to provide low-income families with the means to enroll their children in local sports and recreation programs. By alleviating the financial costs of enrollment fees, children can develop the confidence, social skills and healthy lifestyle attainable through sport.

What makes us Unique
Children that have received funding are required to “pay it forward” through Their Opportunity’s give-back program. This program is beneficial to both the child and community, as children use the skills they have developed through sport to enhance the community through service and engagement.


The Give-Back

There are two major things that make us unique as a children's charity. Firstly, is the way we handle our donations and disbursements. What ever money we raise in a particular region stays in that region unless otherwise ear-marked.
