follow your dream and if you work hard it can come true."

You can help the BC Sports Hall of Fame make a difference in the lives of 
BC's kids. We all need inspiration, especially kids.

The Hero In You Youth Education Programs are created to inspire by using the exceptional examples of our Hall of Famers. Who better to teach about goal setting, perseverance and the importance of hard work than a BC Sports Hall of Famer?

The Hero in You Youth Education Programs encourage and educate and they're FUN!  Last year over 5,000 kids participated in the programs and this year we need your help to double that number. We will be focusing our efforts to reach kids, who through no fault of their own would not otherwise have an opportunity to visit a Hall of Fame.

After a Hero In You presentation eight year old James shared, 
"My friends said I wasn't good enough to be a pro soccer player, but now I know I can if a try really hard and practice!"

A Hero In Your Heart donation helps fund our program and allows us to welcome more kids to the Hall of Fame, visit more schools, attend more community celebrations and ultimately inspire more kids!
