Appco Group backs coast-to-coast charity cycle

Appco Group is sponsoring an adventurous cyclist journeying 4,000km across Australia to raise money
for his quadriplegic friend Zane Conroy.

Alex Watkiss will average 130km a day with only two rest days, cycling from Perth on the west coast
to Bondi on the east coast to help raise money for Zane’s on-going care and medical costs.

Appco is the main sponsor of the event, covering the cost of the ride itself and supporting Alex to get
around the country by providing the ancillary vehicles.

Zane tragically injured himself in 2010, diving into Sydney Harbour and instantly breaking his neck.

Appco Group UK Senior Call Centre Manager Glendon Evarts is a close friend of Zane’s and has played
a lead role in promoting the charity cycle.

“It’s an unbelievable story – it’s not only something I’d personally like to support, but it’s something that
the very ideals of Be Something More really personifies,” said Chris Niarchos, Founder and Chairman of Appco Group.

“We, at Appco have decided to get behind the whole programme. This is what Be Something More stands
for: to do something with life that’s really special, to do something that’s different and to do something that means something to other people in such a positive way.”

Visit the ‘Coast 2 Coast’ website for further information, including a map of the bike ride and how to donate.
