Welcome at the homepage of the Sittard Kennedy March. The Sittard Kennedy March came into existence in 1963 when the American president John F.Kennedy spoke the words "I think most American people are so weak, they can't even walk fifty miles within 20 hours". At many places people tried to prove that these words didn't apply to them. In Sittard, four highschool students started the first Kennedymarch. It developed into a tradition. In 2009 the number of participants was 3048.
