It’s that time of year! Break out the hats, scarfs and headbands, oh and if course the runners, the Kilcock GOAL mile is back again!
The organisers of the Kilcock GOAL Mile took to their Facebook page today to promote the return of their now annual event;
“Although things are a little different this year, you can still go that extra mile by taking part in our Virtual Mile Run. It’s unfortunate we won’t be able gather as usual but we can all still do our part while staying apart!
This year we will be hosting our fundraisers online at the link attached below and doing our runs separately. I hope to see people posting selfies or track record screenshots of their mile run on this facebook page or even tag us @kilcockgoalmile.
With the current situation we believe a little kindness goes a long way and getting outside for a bit of activity will do us all a world of wonders. So please support charities this year and do your part to spread a little joy this Christmas”
Roisin Reddy who helped set up the fundraiser and is taking part herself said; “I’m taking part in the GOAL Mile to raise funds and highlight GOAL’s life-saving work across Africa, the Middle East and Latin America.
GOAL believes in a world where poverty no longer exists, where vulnerable communities are resilient, where barriers to well-being are removed, and where everyone has equal rights and opportunities.
GOAL’s work is reaching out to some of the most vulnerable communities in the world. With your support we can keep GOAL’s life-changing programmes moving forward. Please donate whatever you can. Thank you”
Roisin has been hosting the Kilcock Goal Mile for the past three years and describes how she got involved; “My family and I began taking part in the GOAL Mile eleven years ago and we’ve been hooked ever since.
It brings me so much joy to see everyone who comes out to support the run and their kindness warms my heart every year.
I know this year is going to be a little different but luckily for us we have the Internet and social media to help us continue this tradition. Although we will be apart. We can still do our part”
