The BC Sports Hall of Fame preserves and honours BC's sport heritage by recognizing extraordinary achievements in sport by using our collection and stories to inspire young students to pursue their dreams. Using the stories of our Hall of Famers and artifacts from the collection we teach kids to set goals, develop personal plans and achieve success, based on their own terms. Using the values learnt from sport, we provide youth with educational, interactive and inspiring resources to set and achieve their goals.
About Our Charity
The BC Sports Hall of Fame is a non profit organization dedicated to inspiring excellence through the stories of British Columbia's sports heroes. The inspiration for the Hall is its honoured members and the collection of artifacts and stories of their challenges and triumphs from over 100 years. We inspire, educate and entertain through our educational programs, entitled the Hero In You. On line lesson plans provide teachers from grades 3 to 7 with curriculum-based content to teach students to set goals, develop a personal plan and puruse their dreams through inspirational stories of our Honoured Members. Field trips provide students and community groups with interactive, experiential tours of our galleries, including the Rick Hansen, Terry Fox, Greg Moore and Olympic Inspiration Galleries. Our On the Road teams share the stories of our heroes and our collection with communities and schools across the province, currently reaching 92% of the school districts in BC.
What People Are Saying
"It was a venue that provided an opportunity to be around what I loved and that’s sport. There’s no question that it was an inspiration for me when I was very young. Coming in and to be able to understand the history of sport in this province will stimulate kids to want to be involved in sport."
— Bob Lenarduzzi
"Being a role model for kids is an awesome opportunity for me to give back a little bit to a sport that’s given me so much and sharing my message about safety and injury prevention as well as what it means to be an athlete. It’s a great honour for me to be able to do that and share that message."
