Every year The Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre (CACAC) hosts the One Day Challenge, with the goal of selling one 50/50 Cash Lottery ticket package for every child, youth, and family that the CACAC has helped. Last year’s goal was 1,301, and in just one short year that number has increased to 1,973 – over 600 more children, youths and families.

Covid-19 made an already bad situation worse for many families in Central Alberta, making this the CACAC’s most difficult year to date, with some of the most complicated cases they’ve seen. The need for the services and programs that the CACAC provides is growing, and they need your help!

You can purchase your tickets online or over the phone, and then challenge others to also buy tickets through social media or by calling directly.

Mark Jones, The CEO for The CACAC talks about the importance of  the fourth One Day Challenge.

"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.

In just 4 years, we have been able to help 1,973 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."
