Running the Race: CFC ANCOP Cup Spring Relay Run 2014
Tuesday, February 13, 2018
Earmarked as one of two major ANCOP Vancouver events, the revamped CFC ANCOP Cup Spring Relay Run 2014 rallied over five hundred individuals from Couples for Christ and its Family Ministries to the Holy Cross Regional High School Track in Surrey, BC during the final weekend of April.
Scoring its third year, the Spring Relay Run highlighted the importance of helping those in need particularly in the housing sector where affordable shelter continues to be a dilemma. The fund-raising event was aimed at bankrolling 12 modest houses in the Philippines.
After taking a one year hiatus, this year's relay run came with salient modifications and improvements over race mechanics in order to promote cooperation, harmony, fairness and collaboration with the Singles for Christ, Youth for Christ, Kids for Christ and the Handmaids of the Lord. The revitalized affair showed promising feedback as participants and spectators alike had a better appreciation of the sport. Among the refinements introduced was the concept of the Cup where the winning chapter would have their name etched on the plate. The same Cup would then be awarded to next year's winner and so on, and the victors would be honored for years to come. (Jon Javier, Vancouver, Canada) http://www.ancopcanada.com/?q=node/75
