Story

The second annual 2010 Legacies Now Connecting Communities Tour visited ten BC communities in 2006. The tour, presented by Bell and the Province of British Columbia, travelled the province to share the spirit of the 2010 Winter Games and encourage British Columbians to create their own legacies leading up to 2010 and beyond.

More than 28,300 people visited the 2006 tour, which featured information on 2010 Legacies Now programs and interactive activities, including a hockey shoot, ski simulator and children's activity zone. The exhibit also featured a panel of Canada's Olympic and Paralympic history, and information on Bell's support of BC athletes. In each community, Bell presented a local up-and-coming athlete with $1,000.

The tour stopped in Richmond, Courtenay, Whistler, Prince George, Terrace, Fort St. John, Kamloops, Penticton, Cranbrook and Abbotsford.
