Students supported wounded veterans by participating in Invictus Games day at Humber College’s North Campus in Etobicoke.

The games include 12 sports that wounded and ill veterans can participate in.

The third Invictus Games will be held in Toronto on Sept. 24-30 2017 and Prince Harry is the patron.

 

Organizers are still looking for over 1500 volunteers, to sign up visit their website. 

On Tuesday, the event at Humber was hosted by sports management students.

People in the Student Centre were able to play wheelchair basketball to experience how it feels to take part in the game. The wheelchairs were provided by the Wheel Chair Sports Association.

The event also raised money for the Soldier On Fund by taking donations from a raffle draw and bake sale. The money raised helps the Canadian Armed Forces.
