Think for a moment about the women in your life. Do you know at least 10? Then chances are you know someone with endometriosis.

Despite affecting over 200 million women worldwide, endometriosis is often overlooked or misdiagnosed for several years, with many women going a decade or more with no definitive answers for their symptoms. We want to change that. We want to put an END to endometriosis.

Please join us on Saturday, March 28th, 2020, as we join forces to raise awareness about endometriosis and other related women's health issues. All who register in advance for this short 1.5 mile walk will receive a free souvenir item at the event.

Don't want to walk? Come anyway and be a part of the fun! We will have music, speakers and raffles at the event, with proceeds benefitting the Cleveland Clinic Center for Endometriosis and Chronic Pelvic Pain.
