2022 AIB Goal Mile at Christmas

Greta Streimikyte

This year, AIB is celebrating the long-standing tradition of partaking in the GOAL Mile at Christmas by calling on the people of Ireland to Step Up Together to re-establish this tradition with their friends and families or to create new ones. Paralympian Greta Streimikyte is joined by former Irish rugby international player Stephen Ferris, Kilmacud Crokes star Craig Dias, Mayo senior football assistant manager Stephen Rochford and Irish chef and bestselling author Trisha Lewis, who will all be taking part in a GOAL Mile this Christmas.

Celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, the GOAL Mile has seen tens of thousands of people run or walk a mile, just 2,000 steps, to raise funds and enable its work supporting vulnerable communities in 14 countries across the globe. People and communities across Ireland can Step Up Together to take part by visiting www.goalmile.org. They can register to take part in one of the hundreds of AIB GOAL Mile events taking place across the island of Ireland, sign-up to organise a new event, or pledge to take their 2,000 steps at any time throughout the month of December. Donations to GOAL can be made at www.goalglobal.org/donate.
