Justine Griffith

Finish line!

I've conquered 28km for Cancer Council

Bag is packed and I'm ready to go!

I've got my new shoes (worn in a bit so they wont cause blisters, but I have some blister band-aids just in case!), Mark's Anfield hat, Mark's backpack, CanTeen bandana and the drink bottle Peta made for me!
8pm and I'm off to bed, ready to rise early and walk! 
Thank you once again everyone!
Much Love
Justine

Canteen Bandana

This Friday 29th is Bandana Day, fundraiser for Canteen. They have some amazing bandanas for sale on their site but I wanted to be able to get one to wear on my 7 Bridges Walk tomorrow because Canteen have been phenomenal in their support of Ceilidh over the last 12 months. 
Chatime is their sponsor this year so yesterday arvo I went down and bought myself a bandana to wear on my walk tomorrow. 
This time tomorrow I’m hoping I’ll be 1/3 through my 28km! 😀

3 days to go!

It's been a tough week. Dad's 1st Anniversary last Sunday, a funeral for a friend today (and my first time at seeing many people since Mark died.) and then Mark's birthday next Wednesday. Our first birthday without him. 
But - I'm all fired up and ready to walk on Sunday!  
I am absolutely OVERWHELMED and grateful for the support and love shown to me by so many of my friends and friends of friends! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. 
As you know, Cancer Council have done so much for my family in the last 12 months and we wouldn't be as 'ok' as we are without their assistance.
This gorgeous montage I have uploaded shows Marky and I, the day after he arrived home from hospital. I can't believe how quickly he deteriorated from that photo. Next to him is Dadda and I on the edge of his hospital bed at home. I hate seeing that pain in his face. Underneath is Dad and I when we went to the local farmers markets. It would have been one of the last outings he was up to. Finally, May this year. Mother's Day. Mark looks so well and yet he was so ill inside. I think this is probably the last family photo of the 5 of us. So even though it's just a quick snap, I will treasure it forever!

10km today!

This afternoon was cloudy and rainy so I decided it was a good time for a Friday mental health break and some training for next weekend. 
The girls came with me but peeled
off at various intervals. 
Darcy did 2km with Jazzy. 
Ceilidh did 7km with Patch and I did 10km with Bob. 

Walking the dogs

This photo was taken the last day before Mark was rushed to hospital with the internal bleed. We took the dogs to the dog park and did a walk around Casula Parklands

I’m walking for a cancer free future

I’m taking on the 7 Bridges Challenge this October and will be walking 28km for people impacted by cancer.

Every year in NSW alone, more than 47,000 new cases of cancer are expected to be diagnosed and the impact on families, carers and communities is significant.

Please sponsor me and help those affected by cancer. Every step counts because all funds raised will help Cancer Council fund life-saving research and vital support services for people impacted by cancer. Thank you for your support!
