We had hundreds of walkers take part. As a collective we walked 13, 588km and raised $42, 000. We walked so that everyone with Endo would know that we SEE them, we BELIEVE them and we HEAR them.
In 2022 we will be walking in October again and we would love for you, your team or your workplace to walk with us. Help us to change the lives of those with Endo through research and advocacy.

All money raised will go towards Endo research conducted at Deakin University. Deakin will be conducting research into the financial impact Endo has on individuals and the community . Very little research has been done on this and we need more – the research informs politicians – with more research showing just how big a financial impact Endo has we can argue for more funding for treatment and research. How much we raise will determine the scale and scope of the research conducted. We will use the findings to lobby politicians for more funding and research grants.

EndoHelp Foundation is dedicated to the health and safety of our walk participants, volunteers and members of the general public, and therefore will by conducting our walk virtually in 2021. In absence of an in-person event, we are holding a virtual launch on October 2nd. We will also be hosting multiple live social media events throughout the month to support, encourage and engage with walk participants.
Whilst we encourage our participants to be social and engage with the Endo community during our event, we support the Victorian Government COVID-19 advice and encourage all participants to follow the latest guidelines.
Depending on restrictions, some participants may not be able to physically walk with other members of their team. EndoHelp is committed to the idea of ‘physical distancing’, not ‘social distancing’ and believe that our community can be social through online spaces. We encourage participants to check in with one another virtually during the month. We are kick starting this on our socials:

On this page we have used statistics that refer to cis women as they have been the participants in most of the research to date on pelvic pain and women’s health. Endo Help acknowledges that gender-diverse people are underrepresented across all research into women’s health. Endo Help supports all people who suffer from Endo Help.
