Team Ethos is excited to announce its appointment as the Official Fundraising Partner of Team UK for the Invictus Games The Hague 2020.
Having already raised more than £7 million to assist military sporting talent across the Armed Forces we are very proud to pledge our support to Team UK on their road to the next Invictus Games.
The Invictus Games is the only international sporting event for wounded, injured and sick (WIS) servicemen and women, both serving and veteran, and has become the most iconic symbol of sporting endeavour. The games use the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and generate wider understanding and respect of all those who serve their country. In short, it serves to rebuild lives, family and community. To kickstart the fundraising our registered charity, Team Army, is donating £50,000 to help Team UK athletes achieve their sporting potential at the Invictus UK Trials (the first-ever national multi-sport event for wounded military) and at the Invictus Games The Hague 2020.
Major General Lamont Kirkland, CEO of Team Ethos, said: “We are honoured to have been selected for this role which we regard as a significant endorsement of the activities we have carried out for the Armed Forces and the WIS veteran community since 2011. Our aim is to help the best get better.”
Rear Admiral Jim Macleod, Head of the UK Delegation, said: “We are delighted to welcome Team Ethos as our official fundraising partner. Team Ethos has proven to be a powerful force for good over recent years in helping to fund sport, challenge and adventure in the Armed Forces in an ethical and compliant manner. In particular, they have supported many groups that use the power of sport to assist rehabilitation and enhance the recovery journey for WIS service personnel and veterans. Their track record makes them an ideal partner for the UK Delegation.”
The Invictus Games have helped to rehabilitate and inspire thousands recovering from physical and mental injuries. The games have grown from the initial concept created by Prince Harry, which took place in London in 2014, into huge international events involving military personnel and veterans from 18 nations.
