Fisher House Foundation Supports 2016 Invictus Games

In a March 29, 2016 press release, Fisher House Foundation announced its support of Invictus Games 2016.

Continuing its support for our wounded warriors and their families, Fisher House Foundation is proud to announce its sponsorship of the 2016 Invictus Games in Orlando, FL, May 8-12 at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.

The Invictus Games is a Paralympic-style, multi-national event that is open to all wounded, injured and ill military personnel and Veterans.  This is the second Invictus event that Fisher House Foundation has sponsored.  At the inaugural Invictus Games in London in 2014, Fisher House Foundation was not only a sponsor for the games, but also hosted the US family program, ensuring family members of our American athletes could share in the excitement and healing process.

“We see this as a continuation of our mission of building ‘homes away from home’ for our military and Veterans’ families,” said Ken Fisher, Chairman and CEO of Fisher House Foundation, and Chairman of the Organizing Committee of Invictus Games Orlando 2016.  “We make it possible for families to be together during a medical crisis, but we also want them to be there during the height of their recovery. These games, like America’s Warrior Games, have an amazing impact on the recovery and morale of both the athletes and families.”

“I was so moved by the Invictus Games in London,” said Ken Fisher.  “Not only were the families inspired and swept away by the excitement, but it was a chance to connect to other countries’ warriors and families.  One of the athletes who won gold, silver and bronze medals in London said it perfectly, “We are all fighting the same battle and that battle is with ourselves—we are all winners.’”
