The Invictus Games Foundation is pleased to continue our long standing relationship with Boeing, as they have committed to supporting the work of the Invictus Games Foundation through to 2026.
Boeing has also made a multi-year commitment to the Invictus Games Vancouver Whistler 2025 and will now serve as Global Presenting Partner for the first ever winter edition of the Invictus Games.
Building on a longstanding commitment to veterans and their families, Boeing's partnership with the Invictus Games Vancouver Whistler 2025 follows its previous sponsorship of the Invictus Games Sydney 2018, Invictus Games The Hague 2020 and as Presenting Partner for the Invictus Games Düsseldorf 2023.
“We are very grateful for the long-term support of Boeing for the Invictus movement. This builds upon their sponsorship of Sydney 2018, The Hague 2020, Düsseldorf 2023 and now further supports the Invictus Games Foundation, to allow us to support the recovery of the wounded, injured or sick service and veteran community year-round ” said Invictus Games Foundation CEO Dominic Reid OBE. “Our work supporting international wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women through sport is only made possible by partners such as Boeing, which has committed to long term support for veterans and their wider community.”
The partnership will provide funding for the Foundation to continue to inspire the recovery of international wounded, injured and sick veterans and service personnel through the power of sports, esports and adventurous challenges. In particular, this extends to the work of the Foundation beyond the Games, to improve ongoing access to recovery and rehabilitation programs, including Invictus Endeavours, and will allow the Foundation to develop best practices and research to support the international veterans community.
In 2021, Boeing contributed more than €11 million in support of veterans workforce transition and recovery and rehabilitation programs globally. Over the past five years, Boeing has contributed more than €10 million to support charitable organizations across Europe – this includes approximately €1 million for programs that support veterans and their families living on the continent.
“Current and former servicemen and women play a vital role in communities around the world and are an integral part of Boeing's identity,” said Cheri Carter, Vice President of Boeing Global Engagement. “We are deeply committed to empowering servicemembers and their families in their recovery journeys so they can achieve success in their next mission.
We are honored to continue our partnership with the Invictus Games Foundation to celebrate the unconquerable spirit of all of the Games competitors and the families who support them.”
The upcoming Invictus Games Vancouver Whistler 2025 in British Columbia, Canada will feature 500 competitors from 22 nations and will also bring together the family members and friends of the competitors to acknowledge their role in recovery, post-injury or illness. The Invictus Games Vancouver Whistler 2025 will take place on February 8-16, 2023.
