On of our members, Jackie Buttnor, competed on the Canadian Team for the 2017 Invictus Games held in Toronto. The Invictus Games were established 3 years ago by Prince Harry as a means of rehabilitation and friendly competition for wounded warriors. Jackie is now retired from the Canadian Armed Forces which gives her time for her training and singing with our Sweet Adeline Chorus.
During the games Jackie participated in three events: Powerlifting, Rowing and Wheelchair Rugby.
She won the SILVER MEDAL in Womens Powerlifting!
We are SO PROUD of Jackie's accomplishments and those of ALL of the Veterans who participated in the Invictus Games. They inspire us.
