In order to support wounded, injured, and ill servicemen and women worldwide, Boeing announced a multi-year commitment to the Invictus Games Vancouver Whistler 2025 and the Invictus Games Foundation.
Boeing will invest in the Invictus Games Foundation, the nonprofit organization that oversees the Invictus Games, in addition to sponsoring the inaugural Invictus Winter Hybrid Games, to support the organization’s comprehensive resources and programmes for both physical and mental recovery.
The 2025 Games are scheduled for February 8–16, 2025, and will feature wheelchair curling, alpine skiing, snowboarding, biathlon, Nordic skiing, skeleton, and indoor rowing in addition to the wheelchair rugby, wheelchair basketball, sitting volleyball, swimming, and indoor rowing that are the main events of the Invictus Games.
“Boeing’s continued commitment to the welfare of our global community is demonstrated by its extended support.” As demonstrated by their emphasis on recovery and employability, Boeing’s workforce and leadership are deeply connected with respect for the armed forces, according to Dominic Reid OBE, CEO of the Invictus Games Foundation. “They help ensure that our sport recovery opportunities are available year-round for all members of our community because of their unique connection to our work beyond the Games.”
Boeing’s partnership with the 2025 Games builds on a longstanding commitment to veterans and their families. Prior to this, Boeing sponsored the Invictus Games in Sydney (2018), The Hague (2020), and Düsseldorf (2023).
Boeing gave more than $12.3 million in 2023 to support global programmes for the recovery, rehabilitation, and workforce transition of veterans. Boeing supports Canadian veterans and their families in Canada through partnerships with Veterans’ House, True Patriot Love, Citadel Canine Society, and Perley Health.
