We’re thrilled that you’re keen to help us out! Endometriosis New Zealand relies on our generous community across New Zealand to continue to provide unique and professional services and programs to improve health outcomes for those living with endometriosis and persistent pelvic pain. We don’t receive any government funding, so it’s people like you who make all this possible.
“During my almost a decade of trying to get to the stage of completing an Ironman, I have battled with Endometriosis. It wasn’t until I was unable to live my life freely around my period that I noticed exactly how much it was holding me back. For most of 2016, I spent ways learning to try to manage horrendous amounts of pain. I became completely inactive, gained weight, and struggled with mental health. Yet I was told by so many people there was nothing wrong and my period pain was normal. I thought I’d truly gone insane! Eventually I found the help that I needed and started to slowly train towards my Ironman goal again.”
For over 12 years, Rob’s partner Alex has been battling endometriosis. Without seeing the effects and the struggle first-hand, Rob would know almost nothing about this disease. To spread awareness, raise funds, and ultimately do his part for Alex and others living with endo, he will be participating in three 70.3 distance races starting this December.
Knowing that funds raised for ENZ and awareness of the condition, will enable more people to feel supported, and to break through the barriers of Endo – developing mindsets to turn Endo into their strength.On Friday 2nd December 2022, Harriet is took on a mammoth challenge. For eight consecutive days, Harriet ran and biked from Farewell Spit to Ross in the South Island. A total of 650 km!! 650 km is the same distance from Auckland to Wellington!!

” I am fundraising for Endometriosis New Zealand, who’s resources have been extremely helpful to understand what is going on in my body, and explain to others a disease that is invisible. The work they do for young people, research and advocacy is huge for the endo community in Aotearoa. Competing in the Ironman 70.3 is going to be a very big challenge! But I am hoping that training for this event can raise some awareness about endometriosis and prove to myself that while this disease is part of my life, it doesn’t control it!” Ella
“It’s something I’m passionate about because I’m one in ten, and a number of my loved ones are affected by Endometriosis too. Raising awareness and sharing our stories is so important, so others can get help and support they desperately need, earlier.” – Nicole
Nicole will be taking part in the 10km element of the waterfront half marathon, in April next year to raise money and support the vital work NZ endometriosis does.
