Some 3,000 par­tic­i­pants will join the Cou­ples for Christ’s (CFC) Global walk to­day, Septem­ber 16, 2018 in Davao City.

The event is part of the or­ga­ni­za­tion’s sup­port to un­priv­i­leged stu­dents, thus, the theme, “One Na­tion Walks for Ed­u­ca­tion”.

“It is a global walk be­cause it will be a si­mul­ta­ne­ous ac­tiv­ity all around the world,” Bene­dict Me­jo­rada, CFC event head, said, adding that the event was also or­ga­nized by the An­swer­ing the Cry of the Poor (ANCOP) Pro­gram of CFC as an an­nual ac­tiv­ity in ma­jor cities around the world.

“Ex­pected par­tic­i­pants in the coun­try and out­side are 10,000,” he said. CFC has over 100 schol­ars in Davao City. “Adunay mga es­tudyante karon na dili maka­pa­sok sa state priv­i­leges, so we are try­ing to give op­por­tu­nity to those un­der­priv­i­leged stu­dents to give schol­ar­ship for them (We give schol­ar­ships to un­der­priv­i­leged stu­dents who are not en­ti­tled to state priv­i­leges),” Me­jo­rada said.

“It is our hope that with every year, more par­tic­i­pants can join, so that we can have more schol­ars,” he added. Reg­is­tra­tion fee is P200. The walk will start at 5 a.m. at Matina Town Square (MTS).
