Founder, Roland Hagenbeek formed an international detachment of veterans and soldiers for the Nijmegen Four Days Marches last year for the first time.
Roland managed to get twelve people from four different countries together at the Heumensoord camp. From Heumensoord they walked for four days in the Waalstad and her beautiful, wooded area. After four days of walking, they all awaited a glorious entry on Via Gladiola and then received the well-deserved Four-Day Cross. Despite the well-known blood, sweat and tears, the complete detachment came to the finish.
This year it will be tackled bigger and the organization consists of four people. The goal is to get more than twenty-two soldiers and veterans together so that two detachments can be formed. The advantage is that two caregivers can also join. Thanks to sponsors, clothing is made. Various training sessions are organized in the Netherlands, Germany and even in Spain. During these walking tours everyone gets to know each other and the can already taste the atmosphere
International armed forces and veterans are looking for soldiers and veterans who feel like continue where others stop on the four days, having fun, singing on Beukenlaan and ending these days while dancing with the blister ball. Yes? Are you also looking forward to it? Yes sign up.
