Aon becomes official partner of the Invictus Games Sydney 2018
Aon has committed its support for the wounded, injured, and ill servicemen and women by becoming the official supporter of Invictus Games 2018 and Invictus Games Australian team, to be held in Sydney from Oct. 20-27, 2018.

“Many servicemen and women suffer life-changing injuries, visible or otherwise, whilst serving their nation,” said Lambros Lambrou, CEO of Aon Risk Solutions in Australia. “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.”

Aon's support of Invictus Games 2018, which will see some 500 participants from 18 nations compete in 11 adaptive sports, will help cast light on initiatives that inspire mentally and physically challenged servicemen and women to stay connected, healthy, and active.

“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.

The new sports deal follows Aon's recent announcement of its partnership with Curtis McGrath, a Paralympic Games gold medallist and an Invictus Games Sydney 2018 ambassador.

“The Invictus Games are such an important event for those recovering from injury,” McGrath said. “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.”
