Beyond the summit
For the second year, local bank Beyond Bank Australia has come on board as a major sponsor of Conquer the Summit.
Beyond Bank is one of the largest customer-owned banks in Australia and their support of our event and many others and is just one way they get behind local communities.
On top of this, their status as a BCorp and commitment to the welfare of the planet complements our committee’s aim to run an environmentally responsible event.
“Conquer the Summit plays an important role in supporting Operation Flinders, an organisation that does some wonderful work with young people at risk,” Community Development Manager, Stephen Handrick said.
“The event is a good opportunity to both support our local community and to provide some real benefit to a charity that changes so many lives,” Mr Handrick said.
“Not only that, we have a number of staff who take part in the event every year, so it’s good for them too,” he said.
And for those who’d like to support Operation Flinders or other charities a little bit more, why not drop into your local Beyond Bank branch and open a Community Reward Account? As your savings grows, the bank will donate directly to your nominated charity or cause. It’s the easiest fundraising you’ll ever do!
Beyond Bank will have a team of runners in the event and have tasted their fair share of success in previous years.
“Some of our runners have other commitments this year and will be out on the road riding their bikes for another great cause, but I’m still quietly confident that we’ll put in a good showing,” Mr Handrick said.
