Christmas is a time to give back.

If you want to help those in need this festive season why not take part in a GOAL Mile?

What is a GOAL Mile?

GOAL Miles take place in villages and towns across Ireland each year.

Thousands of people come together to raise awareness and funds to fight global hunger.

The concept actually started in Dublin in 1982. Athlete Noel Carroll asked people to run in The Phoenix Park on Christmas morning to raise much needed funds for GOAL.

Fast forward to 2018 when 130 events took place across Ireland.

If you want to make a new family Christmas tradition, check out the interactive map to find your local GOAL Mile.

Sign-up today at goalmile.org.

Here are some of the Dublin locations:

  • Eamonn Ceannt Park, Sundrive Road
