DTC ORGANISE GOAL MILE ON DECEMBER 23

Gideon Kipsang’s family have benefitted from the generosity of DTC members this year.

Derry Track Club is organising a GOAL MILE at Foyle Arena in Derry-Londonderry’s Waterside for the first time on December 23.

The plan is to hold a timed mile on an internal loop of St. Columb’s Park every 30 minutes starting at 10:30am and concluding with a seventh and final mile at 1:30pm.

Everyone who takes part will get a special certificate showing their time – there is nothing to stop anyone making it a training session and doing more than one mile.  Loads of spot prizes.

There is no entry fee – just contribute what you want.  All contributions go 100% to the GOAL charity.  Click here for GOAL Website.

Somewhere in the world last year, one person was driven from their home every three seconds.

“Every day in GOAL, our staff work with families who have been left with no option but to flee their homes because of violence or hunger.

What was long considered a slowly-building crisis, a rapid escalation in numbers over the past five years has now brought on a displacement catastrophe.

A staggering 66 million people are now part of this global issue.

Somewhere in the world last year, one person was driven from their home every three seconds.

In the past 12 months, the problem has worsened again. And that is simply unacceptable.

GOAL is focusing on this theme of ‘Home’ as part of our 2017 Christmas Campaign.
