Walk for Endo 2021

It takes an average of 8 years to get a diagnosis of endometriosis in the UK - that's too long! Walk 8k in solidarity with those on the journey to diagnosis and beyond.

Do Walk for Endo your way: walk 8k on your own, with friends, family, or colleagues, walk 1k every day for 8 days, split the walk up over a week or run, cycle or swim 8k instead… it’s a flexible challenge where you can fundraise however works for you. 

We were blown away by how many of you took to the streets, footpaths and hills to Walk for Endo last summer, but we still have a big job to do. Due to the pandemic it’s been a challenging year for many, including those awaiting endometriosis treatment and diagnosis. As hospital waiting lists continue to be impacted, our support and awareness raising is needed now more than ever before.

So please sign up, set your target and plan your route to raise vital funds and awareness and help us drive down diagnosis times.  

 

Every step counts!
