Thank you for joining us and helping us inspire young people through the values of sport!
The Tournament of Champions held on July 16 at Morgan Creek Golf Course supported the BC Sports Hall of Fame and its Hero in You Youth Education Programs. Proceeds from the event support programs offered to young people providing an opportunity to directly learn from the shared accomplishments of our Hall of Famers! Hero in You presentations are delivered in local community centres, classrooms, schools and even our own Hall of Champions. Young people are inspired by the anecdotes shared in the talks, through artifact investigation and the motivational messages delivered by our Honoured Members.
The Tournament of Champions was a fun filled day of golf that raised $22,000 (net). Golfers experience a day of networking, great fun and inspiration! Thank you to our sponsors, donors, golfers, volunteers, Honoured Members and our Honourary Chair Darcy Rota.
Everyone’s involvement in the Tournament of Champions made it possible for the BC Sports Hall of Fame to educate, encourage and inspire our youth to be motivated and healthy citizens. By helping us preserve and protect BC’s sport heritage collection, we have unique, made-in-BC tools and stories to share through our Hero in You Youth Education Programs.
We invite you to think about joining us in this cause by becoming a recognized sponsor or golfer in the Tournament of Champions in 2016.
“I really liked the tour, I thought it was very informative! I learned a lot and I had a lot of fun with all of the activities and games we got to do. This was a spectacular experience!” Clinton Elementary School Student
“I just wanted to say thanks to you and the rest of the awesome staff at the Hall. We had an incredible time and the students have been wearing smiles since we returned to Nanaimo. We are very fortunate to have had this opportunity and it is a huge help for our staff to keep students engaged in school.” Brett Hancock, Aboriginal Outreach Teacher, AbOUT Program
