Champion Youth Philippines (CYP) dreamed of providing a platform for the youth all over the province to increase their socio-civic awareness, to build camaraderie and to showcase their talents as Christian values are integrated. The organization was established in 2007 through the organization of the youth sector of Life Church. It has brought a radical change in the arena of youth empowerment as more and more young people are coming to Christ through the different activities provided by the organization.
One of the major flagships of CYP is the Hike for Life. It is an annual event for the Filipino youth initiated by the Champions Youth Philippines that started in the year 2006. It has encouraged 1300 old and young hikers to step outside their comfort zones to join a cause in praying for the nation and making a statement against youth oppression.
Hike for Life 2010 will gather 3000 young and old all over Palawan to advocate for youth empowerment and protection of the environment. The 75 kilometer walk will start at the City Coliseum and will end in Puerto Princesa City Subterranean Park. Aside from the walk, there would be lectures, small group sessions and workshops on leadership, purity, environmental concerns and spirituality.
