BC Lions Darren and Geroy
 
Geroy Simon (inducted 2017) currently ranks as the CFL’s all-time career leader in receptions (1029) and receiving yards (16,352), while scoring 103 touchdowns, most punctuated with his signature ‘Superman’ pose in the end zone. His combination of durability, speed, charisma, and community involvement set a new standard for CFL receivers. He was named to the Canadian Football Hall of Fame in 2017.
 
Darren Flutie (inducted 2010) joined the BC Lions in 1991 and quickly established himself as one of the best pass receivers in the CFL.

Join us in celebrating the health and vibrancy of the Indigenous cultures on whose territory we live, work and play. 
 
This event provides the opportunity to celebrate the rich heritage of Canada’s Indigenous culture on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the Coast Salish People. Breathtaking, sweeping and bringing a trail run like no other, this is a run dedicated to the growth of athletics, the spirit of community and the love of fitness.

INSPIRATIONAL EXPERIENCES AND EDUCATION

 
 
Saying farewell is always bittersweet but the glow from the sunny days of summer will last long throughout the year. Over the course of the summer months the BC Sports Hall of Fame welcomed over 1800 group visitors through its doors, ranging from kids from community centres and daycares to adult English language learners, many of whom participated in the Celebrate the Hall tour and All Access tour of BC Place.
 
Of special note are the repeat visitors including UBC English Language Institute, UBC Camps, Westside School, City of Surrey camps and Coquitlam International Education.
