Charity cycle ends with smiles and cheers at Bondi
The Appco Group-supported charity cycle, Coast2Coast, has come to its triumphant end at Bondi Beach.
The 4000km journey completed by Alex Watkiss finished on the golden sands of Sydney’s most iconic beach to the cheers of friends, family and supporters.
Alex with friend Eddie, his sole driver, ventured almost non-stop over 37 days from Perth to Sydney to raise funds for their friend, quadriplegic Zane Conroy.
“It’s just amazing. I didn’t expect there to be this many people waiting at the finish line,” Alex said. “On the way down the hill [to Bondi Beach] I was actually worried. It’s strange it’s over, in a way.”
Would he do it again?
“No,” he quickly laughed. “Not without my wife and family coming with me. I didn’t realise it would be so hard to be away from them, that was by far the hardest part of the entire journey.”
Appco Group was the main sponsor of the event, covering the cost of the ride and supplying ancillary vehicles. Appco Group UK Senior Call Centre Manager, Glendon Evarts, is close friends with Zane and played a key role promoting the charity cycle.
Zane was involved in a tragic accident on Sydney Harbour in 2010 which rendered him quadriplegic.
Funds raised through Coast2Coast are going directly to his ongoing medical care, rehabilitation
