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. Being able to be around those who suffer just like you or your loved one is invaluable. And bonding with other caregivers of someone with Endometriosis is equally important! Come. Walk with us.
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 $7,065.44 for the Endometriosis Foundation of America! In 2016, we had 47 attendees (click here for more info); in 2017, we had 77 attendees (click here for more info); and in 2018 we had 120 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. And now : it’s time to do it all over again!
2019’s walk will once more take place at the historic Naval Training Center Park at Liberty Station. Due to various Stages of the disease, pain levels, and abilities, the route is approximately one mile in length around the park’s border along the sidewalks. 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 at the bottom of this page
The walk is free, but, all attendees must register (I’ll keep your info private). Due to permitting restrictions, we are limited to 300 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!!!
Want to donate? This year you have a few options:
First, donating funds to the Endometriosis Foundation of America and earning a Bloomin’ Uterus button: www.gofundme.com/EndEndo. A $2 donation buys you a Bloomin’ Uterus button. All donations are directly sent to the Endometriosis Foundation of America.
Secondly, you can purchase a Bloomin’ Uterus t-shirt, tank top, hoodie, mug, stickers, or towel! And, again, all profits are donated directly to the Endometriosis Foundation of America. All kinds of choices: https://teespring.com/stores/bloomin-uterus
And lastly, if you’d prefer to help with the expenses incurred by Bloomin’ Uterus for permit and vendor fees, you can donate directly to me to cover costs: https://www.gofundme.com/2019-endo-walk-costs-fundraiser Any funds donated to cover the Walk costs are not tax deductible.
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.
