Running the Race: CFC ANCOP Cup Spring Relay Run 2014
Tuesday, September 12, 2017
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
Jobless. Abroad. Alone and lonely. This was what life was like for many members of Couples for Christ (CFC) Netherlands during the first months of the COVID-19 crisis. The reality of people in need inspired CFC Country Heads Mel and Daday de Leon, together with ANCOP Heads Medel and Milen Aviles, to start the “Tulong Kapatid” program, which provided relief through door-to-door delivery of care packages as well as financial assistance to the most affected CFC members.
MANILA, Philippines — Rain or shine, on lockdown or not, we’re walking for our scholars! For the first time ever, the ANCOP Global Walk (AGW) goes virtual and will target 5 billion steps over three months to help send underprivileged students and seminarians to school. This year, the AGW will also benefit ANCOP’s calamity services, which most recently have been assisting sectors most affected by the COVID-19 crisis.
