It’s the final day of @InvictusToronto and we couldn’t be prouder of Team Canada! We have seen first-hand how important these games are in helping our Veterans find strength and move forward in the face of physical and mental injuries. As a signature sponsor and supporter, we have been cheering since day one and will continue to do so long after the games end. Check out the interviews with athletes from @tcinvictusec on our YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/RCLDominionCommand/feed ——— Aujourd’hui est la dernière journée des Jeux Invictus Toronto 2017 et nous ne pourrions être plus fiers de l’équipe Canada ! Nous avons pu constater par nous-mêmes l’important rôle que jouent ces jeux pour aider les vétérans à trouver le courage et la force d’aller de l’avant en dépit de blessures physiques et mentales. À titre de commanditaire et sympathisant important de ces Jeux, la Légion n’a cessé de les encourager dès le départ et continuera à le faire longtemps après la fin de cet évènement. #IAM #IG2017 #invictusgames

Feeling inspired after attending @invictustoronto events this week that wrapped with the wheelchair basketball finals today. (Also attended by Joe and Jill Biden and Prince Harry) There's something about watching a triple amputee nail a three pointer that makes me feel we can conquer all our problems – big or small! I enjoyed meeting and chatting with other military families from all over the world. One thing that stood out to me were the amount of kids supporting parents. Older kids, you know have seen their parent at their worst, who've shared the struggle, and now share pride in their family's achievements. And the beautiful new babies who remind us all that even in an absence of limb and face of death, life still goes on.
