Zane Conroy has posted a heart-felt message of gratitude, thanking Appco Group for helping him to walk again using an exoskeleton device.
Appco Group sponsored a 4,000km Coast 2 Coast charity cycle, which took place in Australia in 2014 to raise money for Zane, who was left paralysed after a freak diving accident in 2010.
“I wanted to personally thank you all very much [as your donations have provided me with] the opportunity to walk in the exoskeleton,” said Zane. “I can feel my bones getting stronger and I can feel all round that I’m just getting fitter and healthier.
“I really couldn’t have done it without you guys [Appco Group] and the help of every single dollar and cent that contributed to the Coast 2 Coast cycle ride. Thank you very much from the bottom of my heart – Chris, Glendon and everybody at Appco, thank you so very much.”
Zane has a weekly session using the exoskeleton device and is now able to walk 550 steps.
