Erin Molan is the proud daughter of Major General Jim Molan, a former Australian Army officer, and as such has a profound understanding of the issues Defence families face and the vision of Invictus Australia. That is, a world in which all members of the Australian Defence community are active and connected through the power of sport and recreation to enhance their physical and mental wellbeing throughout their lives.
And sport is in Erin’s blood – a Presenter for the Nine Network, Erin is co-host of the hugely popular and Logie-award winning NRL Footy Show and was the first full-time female panellist and co-host in the show’s 22 year history. Trailblazing, fearless and unconquered, we couldn’t think of a better fit for an Invictus Australia ambassador.
Erin is a very proud ambassador for a number of other charities – including Save Our Sons, Defence Cares and Bowel Cancer Australia. Molan also donates her time to support and MC a number of charity events including the online launch of Invictus Australia, the Ronald MacDonald House and Legacy Australia. She also spends time mentoring and engaging with young women.
Molan competed in the gruelling Sydney to Hobart Yacht race in 2015, raising over 5 million dollars so far for the Humpty Dumpty Foundation – a charity that provides much needed equipment for sick children in hospital.
These days Molan, a passionate Raiders fan who hails from Canberra, calls Sydney home, and she will travel just about anywhere to watch and be part of a good sporting contest. She plays a passable game of netball, touch and badminton, which she mastered while growing up in Jakarta.
