NCYC update

We are one day into the National Catholic Youth Conference, and already the NCYC youth have walked enough minutes to help Mae, a 15-year-old girl from the Philippines, and Rosmely, a 17-year-old girl from Guatemala, finish high school! Our last minutes update was at 676. They are now walking to help Jose finish high school. (See below to read more about all three of them.)

As we mentioned earlier this week, the NCYC youth have the opportunity to raise money to help six Walk with the Poor students finish high school. Each NCYC youth who decides to walk on the CFCA treadmills will get to sign a WWTP shoe print for our booth wall. Each foot print represents four minutes of walk time. Each minute earns $1.

Follow CFCA on Twitter for frequent updates.
