P.A.R.T.Y. Toronto would like to honour the memory of its longest serving volunteer, Elton Horner.
Elton began volunteering as an injury survivor speaker with Toronto P.A.R.T.Y. in 1988. Over a span of 23 years he shared his story, life lessons and advice with thousands of young people. Elton's message about the consequences of drinking and driving, including the drastic ways quadriplegia changed his life, really hit home with students.

Elton passed away on October 29, 2011. He will be missed by all Toronto P.A.R.T.Y. Program staff, volunteers and students who had an opportunity to meet him.
Thank you, Elton, for your dedication and commitment. Your message will live on.
