Endeavour Fund alumni compete in Invictus Games

The Endeavour Fund and Invictus Games share an ethos of using sport and adventurous challenges to aid wounded, injured and sick serving and veteran service people in their recovery from injury.

The Invictus Games were created by The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, in partnership with the Ministry of Defence, and take place 10-14 September at London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

We’ll be watching our Endeavour Fund alumni closely during the games, and we’ll be cheering them on as they compete in their events:

• Our very own David Wiseman, who runs the Endeavour Fund, is competing in the 50 meter and 100 meter swimming events on Sunday.

• Nick Beighton, TeamGB Paralympian and member of the Beeline Britain team will be competing in the Rowing on Thursday 11th. Learn more about Nick and how the Endeavour Fund supported Beeline Britain 

• Martyn Gibbs, who has been instrumental in setting up Military Mountain Bikers is competing in the Road Cycling as is Jaco Van Gass, who was a member of the Walking with the Wounded team in 2011.

For those who can’t attend, the BBC will be broadcasting the games.
