Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre’s One Day Challenge returns

The Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre’s One Day Challenge is back.

Every year the CACAC hosts the challenge, with the goal of selling one 50/50 Cash Lottery ticket package for every child, youth, and family that the centre has helped. Last year’s goal was 1,301 – that number has increased to 1,973.

The fourth One Day Challenge is scheduled on Jan. 20.

“Each year the Challenge goal grows as the number of children we support increases,” said CEO Mark Jones.

“The One Day Challenge helps shed light on all the children and families we have supported since our inception, while helping to ensure that we are there for those who need us tomorrow. The proceeds from the CACAC 50/50 Cash Lottery help fund our initiatives and programs so we can continue to help change the way central Alberta responds to child abuse.”

The CACAC helps children, youths and their families from across central Alberta who have been impacted by child abuse.

“Now, more than ever, these children need our help. This past year has been especially difficult for our kiddos, and our service needs have risen dramatically. Nothing is more important than our continued mission of advocating for the most vulnerable people in our community: our children,” said Jones.
