Do you suffer from Endometriosis? Does your wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, grandmother, granddaughter, or friend?  Haven’t heard of Endometriosis?  You can read all about it here.

If you have questions or would like more information, you can email me here.  We also meet once a month in San Diego for a Support Group meeting (more details on our next meeting here).

March is Endometriosis Awareness month! 2015 was the first Bloomin’ Uterus Endometriosis Awareness/Support Walk with 20 attendees (click here for more details) and we’ve since raised over $5,700 for the Endometriosis Foundation of America!  In 2016, we had 47 attendees (click here for more info) and in 2017, we had 77 attendees (click here for more info).  All of the proceeds from fundraising were donated; not one cent went to our pockets or paid for any of the walk supplies, swag, etc.  we’ve raised $ And now : it’s time to do it all over again!

2018’s walk will take place at the historic Naval Training Center Park at Liberty Station.  Due to various Stages of the disease, pain levels, and abilities, our route this year is approximately one mile in length around the park’s border.  You are more than welcome to make several laps if you desire. Check-in will be set up near the restrooms located at the Park, close to the intersection of Dewey Road and Cushing Road.  Free parking is available throughout the park.

WANT TO JOIN US?  Register here

 

The walk is free, but, all attendees must register (I’ll keep your info private).  Due to permitting restrictions, we are limited to 150 attendees.  You’re under NO obligation to donate or help raise money. We’re just looking for good company for the day, support for those of us who suffer from Endometriosis, and to help raise awareness toward this horrible disease.  And wear yellow!!!

I personally pledge to walk 1 mile for every $100 donated (yes, I continue to walk throughout the year).   Curious how the fundraising works?  Click here to see my page : www.gofundme.com/EndEndo.  A $2 donation buys you a Bloomin’ Uterus button. And in February, we’ll be launching our annual Bloomin’ Uterus t-shirt sales for fundraising!  Again, all donations are directly sent to the Endometriosis Foundation of America.

If you would like to help raise funds with your own gofundme.com campaign, please feel free to start one!  We can help you! There is only one condition : all of the funds must be donated to a non-profit organization through Gofundme’s “Certified Charity” function.  All donations will be automatically transferred directly to the organization.  We chose to support the Endometriosis Foundation of America (Tax ID No. 204904437).  However, you could choose to support any Endometriosis organization.  Gofundme makes it easy to set up.  Please let me know if you’d like help.

 This walk is not associated with EndoMarch.

Truly looking forward to walking with you all!

Yours, Lisa
