Walk the World 4 Endo is a virtual month-long walk raising money and awareness for those with Endo. You can walk as an individual or as a team. Grab some friends and encourage each other to get active for the month.
You decide how often and how much you walk. Maybe you have a km goal you are aiming for? Or maybe you experience pain, and just walking a few times a week whilst you share your pain journey is your aim.
The idea is that you walk and fundraise as much and as often as works for you!
We are walking the world to raise money and awareness about #Endo, a debilitating condition affecting #1in9 women (unfortunately to date research has only looked at women. We acknowledge all people with Endo) making it as common as asthma or diabetes. Endo is a debilitating painful condition with no cure. It is estimated to cost the Australian economy $9.4 Billion a year and the individual about $30, 000. The dollar signs don’t fully explain the ripple effect that constant pelvic pain has on a person’s life.
As a collective we are aiming to walk the 40, 075 km needed to walk around the world.
We are walking to spread the message that PERIOD PAIN THAT INTERFERES WITH YOUR LIFE ISN’T NORMAL and needs medical attention.
We are also walking for the 800, 000 women and people who have Endo in Australia and have endured an average of 6.4 years in diagnosis delay.
We are walking to say we SEE YOU, and we BELIEVE you.
Please dust off your shoes and join us to raise awareness and much needed money to research this debilitating disease.

The bonus? Walking is a great form of exercise for those with any kind of chronic pain and is also just really good for your body and mind. Research has shown its benefits for depression, wellbeing and many other facets of health.
Join us in the walk to change the lives of many.
Once you purchase you will be given a link to set up a Just Giving Page so you can start fundraising.
I acknowledge that Walk the World 4 Endo is a fundraising event and I commit to raising money across the month of October to go towards research to improve the lives of all those living with Endo.
