It takes an average of 8 years to get diagnosed with endometriosis in the UK - that’s too long!
Walk 8,000 steps a day this July to support those on their endometriosis journey.
Put on your walking shoes this summer and support the 1in10 with endometriosis who wait an average of 8 years to get a diagnosis. Walk 8,000 steps a day to represent the 8 years of waiting. You can walk on your own, with friends and family, or even get your work place involved. If 8,000 steps a day feels too much, why not organise a relay and take turns!

- Order your Endometriosis UK T-shirt
- Walk 8,000 steps a day throughout July and raise vital funds for those suffering with endometriosis

It took 14 years for Holly to get diagnosed with endometriosis. Get involved this July to help ensure nobody else has to wait that long.
“I am taking part in Walk for Endo because it took me 14 years to get diagnosed with endometriosis. I was finally diagnosed in 2020 after 14 years of not being listened to and suffering. I had laparoscopic surgery in January, but unfortunately despite the surgery, the endometriosis has returned.
“I want to raise money and awareness of the disease that makes my life and so many others a daily struggle. Eight years is too long on average for an endometriosis diagnosis and together we can raise money to help turn this around”.
