Our Mission
The Endometriosis Walk for Awareness is a volunteer-based outreach initiative founded in 1999 by five women with endometriosis. An affiliate of the Endometriosis Association, an international non-profit organization specializing in education, support, and research, the Endometriosis Walk for Awareness strives:

  • To present a unified voice internationally on behalf of girls and women with endometriosis.
  • To bring together women and girls from around the world, presenting the many faces of endo as one.
  • To end the sense of isolation experienced by those living with the disease.
  • To empower women with endometriosis to become healthcare activists for themselves, their families, and their communities.

Our goals for individuals participating in the Endometriosis Walk for Awareness are:

  • To confront the taboos and dispel the myths surrounding the disease.
  • To demonstrate to members of the public and the medical community that endo can and does affect girls and women everywhere in the world.
  • To educate members of the general public and the medical community about endometriosis and its seriousness.
  • To educate government officials about the disease and to stress the need for allocating government and private funds for endometriosis research.


March is Endometriosis Awareness Month. In the past, there have been organized national walks to increase awareness and educate others about endo. In 2002, the walks will be local. The Endometriosis Association is encouraging local support groups to organize walks in their own communities.

Endowalk 2002 can be as large or as small as you want it to be. Two people or two hundred can do it, whatever works for you and your community! There is no specific date set for the walks, we just ask that they be held in March. Please contact the Support Coordinator at headquarters for more information and ideas. Thank you for helping raise awareness of endo!

The Endometriosis Walk for Awareness is supported by an unrestricted educational grant from Praecis Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
