Through a possibly misguided combination of enthusiasm and insanity, on the 1st October I (along with two lovely friends my my local support group) will be walking 23 miles/ 37 kilometers across London for the Pink Pants X London Challenge to raise awareness of endometriosis and some funds for Endometriosis UK.
I’m slightly worried about how epic this challenge will be. As my husband put it: ”So, thee girls with chronic fatigue are going to walk 23 miles? OK then!” But I am determined to do it, and nothing stops me when I have made up my mind about something.
Endometriosis UK are an incredible charity, and they have given so much life changing support to me and other women with the disease. Between us, without the information and support that Endometriosis UK have provided me with since my diagnosis, I am not totally sure I’d still be here today. Their work inspired me to become one of their volunteer advocates, so I can help other women facing the many challenges that this disease can bring.
If you like this blog or have used Endometriosis UK services yourself I’m really hoping you might be able to donate to our fundraising page, to help us to meet our target! I would really appreciate anything you might be able to spare for this great cause. You can donate if you’re outside of the UK too.
Thanks for your support! If you want to follow us on Twitter the 1st October you can do so by using the hashtag #GoTeamHerts. If any of you have tips for walking such a long distance, I would love to hear them!

*Smoooooooooooooooooooooosh* I wish I could sponsor your walk!!!!!! But, I can’t. So, I shared the Pink Pants Challenge page on our 2016 Endo Events page and also linked directly to this blog (hehe). Have a WONDERFUL time! Take breaks as you need them. And, ohmygod, woman, I want to see you in those tiny pink pants!!!!!! I demand photographs while I’m recovering from surgery ❤
Aw thank you lovely- you are just the best! 🙂 I’m going to take lots of photos and videos and will post an update with them after the event!
Good luck for your surgery, and look after yourself.
