Aon will be the Official Risk Supporter of the Invictus Games Australian Team for the 2018 Games. Founded by Prince Harry in 2014, the Invictus Games use the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and generate a wider understanding of and respect for those who serve their country.
Lambros Lambrou, CEO Aon Australia said, “Many servicemen and women suffer life-changing injuries, visible or otherwise, whilst serving their nation. It was a simple decision to become an Official Supporter of Invictus Games Sydney 2018 because the event aligns perfectly with our values as an organisation,”
“We believe the Invictus Games send a fantastic message about what can be achieved through the offer of equal opportunities.”
Invictus Games Sydney 2018 is an international sporting event for wounded, injured and ill servicemen and women. The Games welcome both active duty and veteran personnel and celebrate the critical role played by family and friends.
Aon’s partnership with Invictus Games Sydney 2018 follows the recent announcement that Aon has entered into a partnership to support Paralympic Games Gold Medallist Curtis McGrath OAM, also an Invictus Games Sydney 2018 Ambassador.
“On behalf of the Invictus Games Australian Team for the 2018 Games, I’d like to thank Aon for their vision and commitment to support our servicemen and women. The Invictus Games are such an important event for those recovering from injury.
“The Games harnesses the power of sport to inspire recovery and support competitor rehabilitation, and in turn, the competitors inspire countless others with their demonstration of determination and resilience. The event is also an opportunity to reconnect with the defence community and make lifelong new friends,” McGrath said.
“The competitors taking part in the Games serve as an inspiration to all for their perseverance, commitment and passion, and we are enormously proud to play a role in bringing this event to Sydney,” Lambrou said.
Invictus Games Sydney 2018, will attract more than 500 competitors from 18 nations to compete in 11 adaptive sports in locations across Greater Sydney, including Sydney Olympic Park and on and around Sydney Harbour.
