Co Leitrim people, young and old, are being urged to consider organising a GOAL Mile in their area this Christmas as part of the aid agency’s bid to draw attention to some of the many humanitarian crises that they are currently responding to across the developing world.
GOAL miles were held in several locations across Co Leitrim last year, including Killglass and Mohill. GOAL CEO, Barry Andrews is asking the people of the county to try to top this number over the Christmas and New Year period.
Now in its 33rd year, the GOAL Mile remains one of the country’s most popular annual fundraising events. Each Christmas, tens of thousands of people run, jog or walk a mile for GOAL, helping to raise vital funds for their programmes for the poor.
Last year, more than 25,000 people raised €170,000 at 130 GOAL Miles.
Those interested in organising a GOAL Mile in their area, should email Alan at firstname.lastname@example.org, or ph: (01) 2809779.
