5th Windsor ANCOP WALK

ANCOP is an acronym for “Answering the Cry of the Poor”. ANCOP Canada, a duly authorized Canadian non-profit charity with charity no. 879350312RR0001, provides education, helps build homes for the poor and provides shelter and other basic needs to those who have lost their homes and families due to natural disasters. ANCOP International (Canada) Inc., is present in the following countries to help alleviate the conditions of the poor in India, Kenya, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Uganda, Tanzania,Philippines and recently, Thailand. Annually, close to 10,000 ANCOP advocates walk to raise funds.

The annual ANCOP WALK is ANCOP Canada’s signature event for fundraising and more importantly, an opportunity to tell our story about the work we do – our vision and mission, our successes, and to celebrate the contributions of our partners. Apart from the Walk itself, the event program includes speakers who share about their experiences as program administrators, champions, sponsors, fundraisers, volunteers, and beneficiaries – all of which attest to the global impact of our work. In recent years, ANCOP Walk has been covered in social media and the local news network. Why Walk not Run? We chose to walk instead of run because almost everybody can walk but not everybody can run. Walking takes longer which allows us to raise more awareness in communities where ANCOP Walk is held. Hence, our event is participated by anybody who share their belief that we have collective responsibility to assist in improving the lives of the poor. ANCOP Walk is currently held in 20 locations in Canada. the venues vary from public squares, streets, and parks. It is typically held in August each year with steadily increasing participation.

For Windsor, we hope to see you at the Bert Weeks Memorial Gardens, 9:00 am up to 12;00 noon, Sunday.
