  12. 12. Many Australian parents are now familiar with protecting their child whilst at the beach or swimmingfrom the harmful effect of the harsh Australian sun. We ask why do we not apply the same protection during the day when playing outside ……....... Look up it is the same sun! 12
  13. 13. If you are a 70’s child like me I don’t remember when they your childhood more than came on the scene, between likely didn’t include swimming me being a child and having in a rash-shirt children I can’t imagine letting my children go to the pool/beach They must have been strange? without one. In fact our innovative? But they have backyard pool rules are change the sun safe habits of ‘No rashie, No swim Australians around water That goes for any kid wanting a swim in my poolWe don’t know who pioneered the way with rash suits but at Agoo we are trying to pioneer the way with UV activewear. We hope that one day every child wouldn’t imagine playing outside without their UV Shirts. Education starts young and we hope if we can instil this behaviour at childcare it is a lesson they will keep for life. We hope that this will have an impact on the growing rate of skin cancer. Imagine if we can make a difference to this rate for our children’s generation. We hope you will come on this journey with us. 13

  21. 21. Solution focussed, driven, problem solvers, philanthropic and socially conscious. These are attributes Alison Covington and Susan Wallis demonstrate in their personal as well as business dealings. If they see a problem they feel compelled to assist, which is exactly how Agoo came to AustraliaAlison left a highly successful corporate career to introduce Agoo Activewear. Having been personally touched by Melanoma, and concerned about the screen culture of today’s young kids, Alison wanted to make a difference in the activity levels and sun protection habits of the next generation. Alison was amazed that a product so perfect for the Australian climate and lifestyle was not available in this country. With such a high rate of sun related cancer, it was a product this country had to have. So she made it happen. Agoo Activewear is cool, funky and comfortable clothing that kids love to wear. Stain resistant, UV rated, hard wearing and long lasting, so parents love it too! Perfect for child care, kindergartens and pre-school as the sunscreen never washes off but the paint and grime does! UV Protection …...........… not just at the beach. Many Australian parents are now familiar with protecting their child whilst at the beach or swimming from the harmful effect of the harsh Australian sun. We ask why do we not apply the same protection during the day when playing outside …… look up it is the same sun. Our high tech fabrics will provide your child with UV50+ sun protection but also keep them cool, clothes that keep up with your active child. Alison is a ‘social entrepreneur who has always been committed to charitable and philanthropic projects. Whilst also working full time as a Director of an international corporation, Alison spearheaded Allsorts by Ali, a volunteer enterprise comprising of friends and family. This team handmade, packed, distributed and sold chocolates, with ALL proceeds going to charities and local families in need.Alison also seeks opportunities to assist business colleagues and friends along the way, providing mentoring, advice and coaching one on one and in online forums. Alison also has successful business consultancy and is passionate about assisting others follow their passion and reach their full potential. Follow your passion, and success will follow you. -- Arthur BuddholdWorking alongside Alison is lifelong friend Susan Wallis. Who not only supports the sun safe and active living message that drives Alison, but also has a personal passion for supporting families and children touched by disability, as her own has been. Susan is inspired by a comment made by Alison, who felt she had a responsibility to advocate for families who could not do so themselves.Susan combines her customer and communication related role at Agoo, with an active lifestyle and community involvement in areas related to disability. A board member on two committees, and inspiring guest speaker and presenter in the disability sector, Susan takes her role as an advocate seriously.Giving Susan the most joy is combining her commitment to living an active life with fundraising, the goal being to support the organisations that have assisted her family in their disability journey. Undertaking the Sydney City to Surf fun run along with other team members, Susan has helped raise almost $10,000 for different organisations in the last 3 years alone. She takes her personal responsibility to stay strong and healthy seriously, and hopes to inspire parents of other children, especially those of special needs, to do the same. Social responsibility, and a ‘pay it forward’ attitude, drives Agoo Australia, as demonstrated by fundraising campaigns, joint ventures and alliances with like minded organisations who share their vision to get kids more active and safer in the sun. 21
