Great Walk Foundation - 11th Year
Diaries Diaries 2014 Day 3 - 2014

Last night we presented a check for $5000.00 to Lithgow Children's Early Intervention Program. The recipients were so blown away, there were tears. We were told this means their waiting list would be reduced down to nil and they would be able to help all the needy families on their books. This is why we do this...

Today saw us head from Lithgow to Blackheath. The morning was glorious, we have truly been blessed with the weather. We had some day walkers join us today, Diane Azzopardi, Jeannine Ashbee, Steve Wright and Gary Ward. Thanks guys, this is true support and the additional funds raised from your involvment is great!

We had a few laughs last night and as a result Crossy lost his voice which was not altogether a bad thing... hahaha, sorry mate.

After strapping everyone this morning it was obvious that most are handling things pretty well, only the odd blister. However Mark Geyer was the exception to the rule. It didn't matter what we did with padding or strapping, the big fella has some terrible blisters on his toes. I had to lance his blisters, apply Betadine and pad them up. He was in a fair bit of discomfort even to let me touch them. He took it like a trooper and got on with the job all day, leading from the front all day and one of the first up the massive climb out of Lawson's Long Alley bush track.

MG is man of the match today.

We reached the end of the day at Blackheath and are settling in at The Gardners Inn for a quick rub down by our Physio and Walker Cam McInnes and of course a few cool beverages.

Once again thanks to all of our sponsors, families and the day walkers who lifted us today. Please keep up with us on Twitter and check out the photos on the gallery page.
