Why Dr. Pilon was inspired to join the Invictus Games

20170920_131746As Toronto gears up to host the Invictus Games (IG), a St. Joe’s physician is preparing for his role – as a volunteer on the IG medical team.

“I’ll be part of a large team providing medical services for athletes, coaches and friends and family of the athletes,” said Dr. Ed Pilon, who took on a similar role during the 2015 Pan Am Games.

Dr. Pilon is an emergency doctor at St. Joe’s and has been part of our team for 16 years, supporting the thousands of people who come through our Emergency Department every year. While his experience at St. Joe’s has helped prepare him for this role, he says training for the Invictus Games has also given him valuable lessons that he’ll bring back to his work.

“I’ve learned during my training how to better interact, address and offer to help people living with various disabilities,” he said. “I have a friend who is an ex-Marine — he suffers from a long-term disability as a result of his military service and is now unable to work. Volunteering for these games is my small way of saying thank you not only to him but also to the countless men and women who have served, and are currently serving, in armed services around the world.”

The Invictus Games run from September 23-30 and will feature a wide range of sports including cycling, swimming, wheelchair basketball, archery, golf and more.

“I think it is important to support events like this in our city as it gives all of us an opportunity to demonstrate what is best about this city and the people that live in it,” said Dr. Pilon. “I’m looking forward to the Games, and working with some amazing people to help deliver a top-notch experience for everyone involved.”
