The 12 North Sports Classic

The 12 North Sports Classic brings together celebrities and professional athletes from various sports to British Columbia, Canada every summer for a series of unique, fun events. Our objective, is to raise funds and awareness for local causes, expose and inspire youth to be active and participate in sports, while showcasing British Columbia’s scenery and culture.
