GOAL Mile...25th Dec 2013

A sunny and dry Christmas Morning saw one of the biggest turnouts for many years at the annual GOAL Mile which took place at the CIT in Bishopstown, one of many such events throughout the country.

In the region of €5,680 was raised at the Cork promotion and with the proceeds from Saturday’s Shanagarry Christmas ‘5K’ added it brings the total amount to over €6,100, slightly up on last year.

People of all ages (along with a few dogs!) ran, walked or jogged a mile (or a number of miles) while contributing to GOAL’s work in the Third World.

The fastest time of the day was recorded by no less a person than SANTA himself – in full regalia and despite his hectic schedule (along with the additional burden as captain of Leevale!), Santa covered the mile in a time of 4:35, two seconds faster than Sean McGrath of East Cork.

Thanks to all who participated or who helped out in any way – here’s to Christmas 2013!
