ActewAGL Women & Girls' Fun Run/Walk

Coming up on Sunday the 3rd of March is the Women and Girls’ Fun Run/Walk. This is a 5k event where you can run or walk (hence the name) and any money raised supports the Ovarian Cancer Awareness Foundation and the YMCA of Canberra Runners Club.

I have registered a team on behalf of the Canberra Endometriosis Network (CENTS). We are entering this event to spread awareness of endometriosis, and if we are really lucky and get the largest team of runners, then no matter what results we get, we will get $500 to go towards endometriosis research. Even if we don’t succeed in having the largest team, I’m sure a few women will learn about a disease they never knew existed and maybe some women will finally have a name for the pain and fatigue they have been feeling.

So if you live in the Canberra area and wish to sign up please go to the registration page, select “Join Existing Team” under Registration Type, and select “Canberra Endometriosis Network” as your team. If you join as an individual you will not count when they count up everyone’s names to pick the winning team.

Feel free to invite your friends/family/neighbours/co-workers to join the team, the more the merrier. Anyone can join, you do not need to have endometriosis to join the team. It's all about awareness and getting the word out. Unfortunately this event is limited only to women, so no brothers/boyfriends/husbands/fathers/sons/male friends allowed. Sorry!


When: Sunday March 3rd, 9am
Where: Stage 88 – Commonwealth Park

Entry Fee:

Before 8th February: $25
After 8th February: $30

For more details and to register please go to:

If you or someone you know has endometriosis and they are interested in joining the Canberra Endometriosis Network, the facebook page is here or they can contact the group at the email (Or just give them my email – – and I’m happy to talk to them.)
