AGW 2014: A Weekend of Love
Tuesday, May 27, 2014
The ANCOP Global Walk, an international fun walk held last May 25, 2014, was more than just a crowd funding activity. It was an act of love.

As early as 2:30 AM, members of the service team were already onsite to welcome the early birds. At 5:00 AM, Mass was celebrated in the various walk points—in Manila, the Philippine provinces and some countries—to open the event. And at 6:00 AM, the countdown and gun start signaled the start of the 5 kilometer walk.

As with the previous AGW events, thousands of people from all walks of life gathered in the many walk points worldwide to walk at almost the same time in order to raise awareness as well as funds to send children from poor families to school.

Now on its 4th year, the ANCOP Global Walk (AGW) is funding the scholarship for more than 1,000 children. This year, a major partner for the AGW in the Philippines is SM, through their various entities—SM Cares, SM Mall of Asia and the SM Mall of Asia Complex. For the AGW in Metro Manila, SM Mall of Asia agreed to waive the rental of the SM MOA grounds for the event. This is a welcome development as it helps ensure that a bigger portion of the sponsorship will go to the education of the scholars and not on event expenses.

Several corporate partners likewise agreed to participate in this year's Walk, among them Maynilad, the Far Eastern University, M2M, Vista Land, HGS, Mars Laboratory Instrument Center, Yupangco Electronics, First Metro Investement Corp., ASEC, One Meralco, Microtel, iRemit, Security Bank Foundation, Co-ops for Christ, Philbelt, Tricom, MMAS, Supreme Pipe, NDC, KJ Pua Acoustics Design & Consultancy, EEI Corp., and PhilHealth. Media sponsors DZMM TeleRadyo, Veritas 846, Win Radio, Energy FM, Magic 89.1 and iFM helped in promoting the AGW as well.

All in all, the AGW 2014 was a weekend of love, where families came to give their time and treasure, and corporate partners opened their hands to share their resources to ensure that the scholars since AGW 2011 can continue their education and new ones can be added to the growing number of AGW scholars.
