CAPS Gear Up For A Great Cause - CAPS

Posted on 2nd July 2014 in

An eight-strong team from the Perth headquarters of Australia’s largest locally-owned supplier of generators and compressed air equipment, CAPS, has recently participated in the challenging Bupa Bike Hike to raise much needed funds and awareness for the Asthma Foundation WA.

Entering its 10th year in 2014, the Bupa Bike Hike is Western Australia’s largest community cycling event and has raised over $990, 000 in funds since its inception. The event is divided into three rides that each tackle a different level of difficulty with regards to distance and pace.

CAPS Charity Bike RideJessica Heal, Juan Kotze, Jan van der Laan, Glenn McIntyre, Paolo Lazzari, Melgrace Laudit, Rohan McIntyre and David Elliot completed the Jetts Fitness Mid Hike—a 30 KM undulating journey down the Mitchell Freeway. The team members finished in good time and are planning to push themselves even further in 2015 by entering the 80+ KM event the “Full Hike”.

Paolo Lazzari, CAPS’ International Business Development Manager, organised the 2014 CAPS team and is already preparing for next year’s event. He shared his pride in his team’s efforts and achievements. “The CAPS team did an incredible job this year and really stretched themselves for a good cause,” he said. “It was fantastic to know that we had the full support of the company behind us and are proud that we could contribute to the over $160,000 that was raised this year.”

This is the second year in a row that CAPS has participated in the Bike Hike. CAPS has a strong track record of supporting and sponsoring communities and events, focusing on charitable organisations, disaster relief and communities in need. In the past year, CAPS has participated in or organised a number of events and programs to benefit others, including a Typhoon disaster relief program, Energise 4 Autism and Purple Bra Day.
