FUNDRAISE FOR ENDOMETRIOSIS NEW ZEALAND

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.


FUNDRAISING INSPIRATION


Ella and Ben’s Ironman 70.3 for Endometriosis NZ

I am Ella and her boyfriend Ben are training for the Ironman 70.3 in Taupo, in December 2022!
” 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

Gems Half Marathon for Endometriosis NZ

Gemma entered the Queenstown Half Marathon to raise awareness and shine the light, on a very important condition, so many women suffer from. 

“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 me heart (or should I say uterus!” Gemma from Christchurch

Charlie’s Kāpati Half Marathon

Charlie ran the Kāpati Half Marathon.

“I have chosen to run for Endometriosis NZ because this is such a far-reaching condition that so many people have to deal with. Everyone will know someone who is suffering with it, yet so many of us suffer in silence. Learning more about endometriosis helped me make sense of many things I’d been struggling with for years. Being armed with the right information and support really empowered me to ask the right questions, look after myself better and push for solutions.
Having the endo removed made me realised how it really crept up on me over a number of years. I got used to being foggy, exhausted, bloated and sore and it just became the norm for me. Now I feel like a different person! I’m aware that it’s likely to come back, but I’m trying to enjoy my newfound energy while I have it. There are so many support networks out there now, and I’m finding more and more friends to connect with and share experiences and tips with. That stuff all really helps.” 

Lizzie’n’LibsRun21 for Endometriosis NZ
Libby and Lizzie ran their half marathon.

“To say this has been a journey would be an understatement. This weekend I will be running a half marathon to raise funds for Endometriosis NZ. One of my amazing pals Lizzie Frewen (Mum, Group Fitness Instructor, Clinical Coder and all round awesome girl) was to be running with me but a sneaky little injury has got in her way. However she will run the Queenstown half (come on level 1 ! ) and continue this fundraiser, only this time without me.. why? Next Wednesday I am having a hysterectomy in Christchurch and I will be out of action for a while.

I never thought in a million years I would be faced with a decision like this in my thirties. But after years of chronic pain with endometriosis, which has meant hardly a single day without discomfort, horrific periods and constant pressure in my pelvis, my husband Brandon and I decided to choose quality of life.”

Paddle through the pain barriers

On her 21st birthday recent Lincoln University graduate, Harriet Watson, set out to make a difference. She wanted to raise awareness about endometriosis, a condition affecting 1 in 10 Kiwi women.

Relatively little is known about ‘endo’ as for decades, this has been a taboo subject, but through research and education, more women are able to manage the often-debilitating pain that endo can cause.
