Started first in 1977, this year’s GOAL Mile is supported by AIB in the first of a new three year partnership, announced last month.

This year marks the first time that both in-person and virtual GOAL Miles are taking place following the move online due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Prior to the pandemic, over 170 GOAL Miles were organised across Ireland, with approximately 50,000 people raising over €250,000 in 2019.
