Presenters:  #56 Solomon Elimimian  #44 Adam Bighill  #27 JR LaRose

The BC Lions Football Club is pleased to partner this season in the launch of a longstanding and popular school program, Lions in the House presented by CN.

Created specifically for youth in grades six through nine, the redesigned Lions in the House initiative is focused on the power of choice and being the best you can be. In particular, students will be challenged to examine their choices as it relates to their own personal safety around railway tracks.

An interactive assembly interspersed with athletic competitions that provide a unique opportunity for the students to compete against each other, Lions in the House features speeches by prominent Leos as they discuss their own experiences in making significant life choices.

This past spring, the Lions visited 25 schools located throughout the province, including the lower mainland, Terrace, Kitimat, Kamloops, Pemberton, Squamish and Whistler.
