BENEFITING: ENDOMETRIOSIS FOUNDATION OF AMERICA
On October 29th I will be running all 13.1 miles of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Los Angeles Half Marathon as a proud member of the Endometriosis Foundation of America (EFA) Charity Partner team! The EFA is at the forefront of combatting endometriosis, a debilitating chronic disease affecting 1 in 10 women of reproductive age. This disease remains largely out of the public eye despite its devastating effects on so many women, girls and their families. As one of the top three causes of female infertility, endometriosis is a widespread but often-misunderstood public health crisis. I have decided to run with the Endometriosis Foundation of America because I am living with this illness right now, and my hope is to bring more awareness to everyone about this awful disease and help find a cure. As I train and raise awareness to help the Endometriosis Foundation of America continue their incredible work, I am asking for your support to donate $1, $5, $10 or whatever you'd like. Your contribution will go towards furthering the foundation’s awareness campaigns, groundbreaking adolescent educational program, and research-related efforts. With your help, we can develop a greater understanding of endometriosis and help improve the quality of life for millions of girls and women.
