The John Giles Foundation, in association with 3, is delighted to launch the ‘Walk of Dreams’, which will take place in 14 locations across Ireland, including Athlone, on Sunday March 27 at 3pm.
The ‘Walk of Dreams’ will bring together people who love football from all over the Midlands to demonstrate the growth and importance of football whilst raising funds for clubs throughout the Midlands and the John Giles Foundation. The walk will start and finish at Athlone Town Football Stadium, Lissywoollen, with more details on the route to follow.
The John Giles Foundation was founded to use football as a vehicle for social change, by providing funding for football in clubs, schools, and community groups.
Half of the funds raised will be retained by participating football clubs while the other half will be used for community football projects in clubs, schools, and community groups throughout Ireland.
The John Giles Foundation is supported by 3 and the Football Association of Ireland.
