More than a thousand participants, donors and supporters joined this year’s Answering Cry of the Poor (ANCOP) Walk held at the Assiniboine Park on August 11, 2018.
The annual event’s main goal is to raise funds for child sponsorship, community development, and other humanitarian relief programs in developing countries like the Philippines.
Larry Vickar, CEO and president of Vickar Auto Group Inc and his family donated a whooping $25,000 which was added to the funds raised by individuals and groups mostly coming from the Couples for Christ community and friends.
Eli Minglana, Couples for Christ ANCOP Area Coordinator thanked the generosity of everyone in supporting the cause. He announced that the total amount raised for all the fundraising efforts made by ANCOP this year reaches $100,000.
Event was highlighted by the walk, a presentation of sponsors and top fundraisers and zumba warm up and cool down and snacks.
Couples for Christ-ANCOP is a faith based organization and has been building homes for the homeless and has also provided scholarships to needy and deserving children in remote areas in the Philippines.
