The Invictus Games and Prince Harry are in Town
This Saturday marks the opening of the Invictus Games in Toronto. The sporting event, which is the only event for ill, wounded and injured active duty and Veteran service members, was founded by Prince Harry and will take place at various venues across Toronto from September 23 to 30, 2017.
Presented by Jaguar Land Rover and supported by iconic Canadian hat company Tilley Endurables, who is supplying 2,500 caps to the games, the Invictus Games includes sporting events like swimming, archery, sitting volleyball, wheelchair basketball, and more, with 550 competitors from across the globe.
Tickets to the sporting events are super affordable for family and friends to attend, with entry to events just $25, and tickets to the opening and closing ceremonies (featuring performances by Alessia Cara, Sarah McLachlan, Bruce Springsteen, and more) ranging between $60 and $150. But if those tickets don’t fit in your budget, don’t fret — there are plenty of free sporting events you can check out, too! Archery, cycling, wheelchair tennis, golf, and the Jaguar Land Rover driving challenge are all free to attend.
Of course, the Invictus Games wouldn’t be the Invictus Games without Prince Harry. The dashing Prince has already landed in Toronto and is expected to make an appearance at the games, as well as former U.S. President Barack Obama (who will be delivering a speech on September 29), and FLOTUS Melania Trump.
If you’re planning on cheering on the games, be sure to grab one of the two hats Tilley Endurables specially designed for Invictus Games. For every Invictus Games hat purchased, Tilley will donate $5 to True Patriot Love Foundation, a charity focused on supporting Veterans and their families. Shop the hats here.
