Annual walk raises funds for the poor

Couples for Christ (CFC) Ponoka hosted ANCOP Canada’s annual fundraising walk at Centennial Park on Saturday, Aug. 3.

“ANCOP” stands for Answering the Cry of the Poor. The organization’s mission is to give relief to the poor through child education, community development and humanitarian relief.

The walk raises funds for child sponsorship and community development and humanitarian relief programs.

The event included a 30-minute walk around Centennial Park, live Christian music and a lunch.

ANCOP, a non-profit organization, was founded by CFC, a global lay organization that is present in over 100 communities around the world.

CFC Ponoka was established in 2011.

The fundraising goal for the walk was $15,000. The amount raised was not available by press time.
