The BC Sports Hall of Fame is planning to develop a special exhibit to commemorate the 50 Golden Moments in BC Sports History in the spring of 2016.
Your attendance at the Banquet of Champions presented by Canadian Direct Insurance makes it possible for the BC Sports Hall of Fame to educate, encourage and inspire the youth of our province to be motivated and healthy citizens. By helping them preserve and protect BC’s sport heritage collection, they have unique tools and stories to share through our HERO IN YOU Youth Education Programs.
