The Irish Life Health Family Mile Challenge
With the welcome return to sport, Irish Life Health has launched the Family Mile Challenge with Athletics Ireland, to encourage families to continue to be active together. Research has shown that parents play a really important role in their child’s participation and enjoyment of sport. They can support their children’s interest in sport by being role models themselves encouraging healthy movement with them. By running together as a family on the 26th & 27th of June, parents can celebrate the joy and simplicity of being active together as a family. The weekend challenge coincides with the Irish Life Health Track and Field national championships which will be the last opportunity for Ireland’s elite athletes to secure Olympic qualification.
