Walk for Ukraine
Dan Zenchuk, 37, born in Peterborough to Ukrainian parents, will walk 152 miles (245km) between 28 March and 2 April to raise money for families in east Ukraine. He will spell out “Ukraine” by passing cities which name starts with on of the letters of the word:
Uppingham in Rutland, Kettering (Northamptonshire), Rugby (Warwickshire), Ashby de la Zouch (Leicestershire), Ilkeston (Derbyshire), Newark (Nottinghamshire), and Empingham (Rutland).
Dan will walk 15 miles (24km) to 36 miles (58km) and the money raised will be used to provide humanitarian aid through the Facebook groep Support Ukraine UK Appeal, of which Dan is a team member.
Dan was born in Peterborough to Ukrainian parents, and his grandparents came from the West of Ukraine, so he wanted to do something personal to support the country.
“Ukrainians have had to live with this threat for the past eight years and our forefathers faced these struggles also, it has made Ukrainians a tough and resilient people,” Dan says.
