GLOBAL WALK: Walk for A Scholar

ANCOP (ANSWERING THE CRY OF THE POOR) launches benefit walk to help send thousands of scholars to school.  ANCOP is the institutional and social response of the Couples for Christ Global Mission Foundation Inc. (CFC) to help the poor and the less privileged.  CFC attends to their needs thru programs in education, health, community development, and livelihood, administered by the CFC-ANCOP Tekton Foundation Inc.

Six years ago, ANCOP Canada spearheaded the ANCOP Walk, mainly to be a means to make people aware of the work and to solicit financial support for the ANCOP Child Sponsorship Program.  Subsequently, ANCOP USA adapted the same walk-for-a-cause concept, conducting simultaneous walks in different states.  In 2011, the inspiration to go global began.  Thus, the birth of the first ANCOP GLOBAL WALK.
            Last August 21, 2011, an estimated 50,000 walkers from Metro Manila gathered at the SM Mall of Asia grounds to stage the first ANCOP Global Walk. The challenge this year is to gather 150,000 walkers from Metro Manila alone.

With a minimal registration fee of Php 300, you can help send a less fortunate kid to school. The registration for the ANCOP Global Walk is currently on-going.  Walkers may either fill out a registration form and submit and pay to any Couples for Christ memberor to the ANCOP Global Walk Secretariat located at 29 Evergreen Drive, Capitol Green Village, Bgy. Tandang Sora, Quezon City.  The AGW Secretariat may be reached via telephone numbers (02) 794-5363 and 935-7590; fax number 794-5363; e-mail walkforascholar2012@gmail.com.  Participants may alsoregister online via www.ancopglobalwalk.com and pay via BDO Bills Payment facility.
