I will be running the Queenstown Half Marathon for Endometriosis New Zealand.
This November I have decided to enter the Queenstown Half Marathon to raise awareness and shine the light, on a very important condition, so many women suffer from.
I will be getting my ‘jog on’ for Endometriosis New Zealand.
This organisation represents the tens of thousands of women with endometriosis and persistent pelvic pain in New Zealand. It is through ENZ’s support that women are encouraged to talk, share and access best practice treatment.
Like so many other women suffering from endometriosis the journey to diagnosis can be long, painful and frustrating. Through my own personal journey I have become particularly passionate in raising awareness and education for women and feel this is a great opportunity to not only run 21.1km but to do it for a charity that is close to my heart (or should I say uterus!)
I am looking forward to running one of New Zealands most scenic half marathons yet this will be a big personal achievement after recent endometriosis surgery in June.
Any contribution is greatly appreciated and I hope my efforts will continue to spread the love, knowledge and education to ensure recognition of symptoms and early prevention.
Thank you for your generosity! xx
