International 4 day Marches in Nijmegen
9 Newman pupil, Viktor Woloszczuk (St Vincent’s Primary, Acton) will be one of over 50,000 youngsters from across the globe taking part this summer in the International Four Day Marches in Nijmegen, Holland. Viktor is part of the 342 Squadron ATC Air Cadets and will be walking with the RAF Middlesex Wing Walking Club. The ‘Vierdaagse’ (Dutch for ‘four day event’) has taken place every year since 1909 and is the largest organised walking event in the world. Viktor will walk 25 miles each day through the Dutch provinces of Gelderland, Brabant and Limburg. In preparing for this challenge, Viktor has so far undertaken a number of 25-mile day long walks and a 50-mile two day walk. With only one blister gained thus far, Viktor is currently training hard - on top of his schoolwork - to ensure he is fully ready for the gruelling challenge. In addition to walking 100 miles over four days, Viktor has set himself an additional personal challenge to raise £1,000, which he intends to donate to the school.
