Aid agency GOAL is asking people from all over Westmeath to run a mile for them this Christmas, and help raise as much money and awareness as possible for their work in the developing world.
The GOAL Mile is held in villages, towns, and cities all over Ireland every Christmas and is one of the country’s biggest and longest-running annual fundraising events. The concept is simple: people run or walk a mile and donate whatever they can afford to GOAL on the day.
Thanks to GOAL Mile organisers and participants, millions have been raised to support GOAL’s work in the developing world since the first mile was held in 1982.
Westmeath GOAL Miles will take place at Castledaly GAA Grounds on December 26 from midday to 2pm, beside the new community centre in the local park; in Multyfarnham on December 25; and Mullingar Shamrocks GAA Grounds on December 25 from 10.30am to 12.30pm.
