Making space for those who never give up
In October, the world was captivated by incredible displays of courage, determination and teamwork from the competitors at the Invictus Games Sydney 2018.
Founded by HRH The Duke of Sussex (Prince Harry) in 2014, the Invictus Games are an international adaptive sports event for wounded and injured veteran service personnel. The Games use the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation, and generate a wider understanding of and respect for those who serve their country.
Goodman was honoured to be The Official Warehousing Logistics Supplier of the Invictus Games Sydney 2018, providing pro-bono logistics space close to the Games venues at Homebush. The warehouse was a hive of activity before and during the Games, housing everything from wheelchairs to uniforms, anything that was needed to make the Games such a success.
By providing the space ideally located to suit the Games organisers, Goodman did what is does best, provide the space for others to succeed.
The inspiring demonstrations of strength and resilience during the Invictus Games showed us all the unconquered sprit of our wounded warriors, but also importantly helped build greater awareness of the importance of rehabilitation and recovery for military personnel.
“A Goodman site is our multi-use warehouse, for everything from the medals, which have been delivered under security from the Royal Australian Mint, to all sorts of equipment, flooring, signage… everything we need to run the Games.”

Stepping up to make a difference
Did you know that cerebral palsy is the most common physical disability in childhood?
The Cerebral Palsy Alliance (CPA) works to help babies, children, teenagers and adults living with cerebral palsy lead the most comfortable, independent and inclusive life possible. It also drives international research into the prevention, treatment and cure of cerebral palsy through the Cerebral Palsy Alliance Research Foundation.
Goodman has been the global partner of the Cerebral Palsy Alliance’s major fundraising initiative Steptember for the past three years, helping fund global cerebral palsy research to help reduce the incidence and improve outcomes for people living with cerebral palsy.
Steptember is a fun event which encourages people to get more active, by taking 10,000 steps a day for 28 consecutive days. The Goodman teams around the world certainly took on the challenge, walking, running, cycling or even kayaking their way to over 159 million steps during the 28 days of Steptember.
Steptember 2018 was a huge success raising over A$10 million globally, exceeding all expectations! Goodman was recognised as the top performing corporate organisation on the fundraising leaderboard across the world.
