“Being chosen to represent Australia in the Invictus Games has given me the opportunity to represent my country again and being selected on the squad of 72 athletes has given me a sense of achievement and confidence within myself, something that has been missing from my life for a long time. The Invictus Pathways Program and the Games have given me a second chance at life and a second family who are always there for me, through physical and psychological battles.” – Emilea Mysko
“Since I began training for the Invictus Games I’ve noticed a huge change with my mental health which has been really positive.” – Brendan Hardman
“I am very honoured and humbled to be selected to represent my country at the Invictus Games. If it were not for The Road Home and the Invictus Pathways Program I can honestly say I would not have made it this far. I felt the sense of support and I knew that as long as I gave my training my best effort, The Road Home would be there to pick me up if I fell. It has given me the opportunity to show my daughter that she can achieve anything if she believes in herself.” – Steven Avery
We look forward to updating you on their achievements after the Games in October!
