“The word ‘Invictus’ means ‘unconquered’. It embodies the fighting spirit of the wounded, injured and sick service personnel and what these tenacious men and women can achieve, post injury. The Games harness the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation, and generate a wider understanding and respect for those who serve their country.” Invictus Games Foundation
The Invictus Games is something I am very passionate about. Many of our service men and women have been wounded, but they still continue to serve Canada by the sheer amount of courage and determination the embody refusing to let their illness of injuries define who they are. They are a source of great pride and inspiration, and I am determine to serve them in any way I can. That is why I am asking you to join Ken Fisher Chairman of the Organizing Committee to say #MoreThanThankYou to all active duty, military retirees and Veterans. Submit a photo of your favorite service man or woman and use the hashtags #MoreThanThankYou and #InvictusGames2016 for a chance to be seen on the Invictus Games 2016 website.
Follow on Facebook and Twitter and get ready to hear incredible stories and make sure you share any photos or videos f your favorite service man or woman using the hashtags #MoreThanThankYou and #InvictusGames2016. I can’t wait to see them!
Here is mine #MoreThanThankYou #InvictusGames2016
