The students, teachers and staff of Academia de Bellarmino together with their families attended the 7th ANCOP Global Walk (Answering the Cry of the Poor). It was held last September 17, 2017, Sunday, at the Quirino Grandstand. The goal was to raise funds for a common cause helping indigent families, particularly children to have a better education which would eventually lead them into having better opportunities, giving them a meaningful life and a more hopeful future.
There was a P300 registration fee for the participants. We had to be there early because the assembly was at 4:00 a.m.. The first activity was Zumba for warm-up. After that, we had prayer and worship. It was up to the participants to choose a 3KM or 5KM walk. After the walk, we heard the Eucharistic Mass.
I had a great time because I got to help the poor and exercise with my family. I felt really tired and sleepy but truly happy. And by the way, it was actually my 7th time to join the walk. I will share my experience in this activity and encourage other students to join next year.
