Planning an Event or Small Gathering in Canada?
The Endometriosis Network Canada has created a private group on Facebook to organize people by city. We are hoping this group will allow people to network and coordinate small gatherings within their own city or area. Our role will be to communicate with your groups so that we can post your gatherings and contact information. We will also endeavour to send media your way.

If you have an idea for a gathering in your city, and would like to be contacted by others with endo in your area, contact us at info@endometriosisnetwork.ca

CN Tower

Light up the Night!

The Endometriosis Network Canada is excited to announce that starting at sunset on Wednesday March 12th 2014, until sunrise on Thursday March 13th 2014, the CN Tower in Toronto, the tallest building in the western hemisphere, will be lighting yellow to mark Endometriosis Awareness Month! The Tower will, as it does every night, run a light show for 8 minutes at the top of every hour.

 

In person – Kick off the EndoMarch with us by gathering at the base of the CN Tower from 8pm – 8:30pm on March 12 to see it lit up in yellow for endometriosis awareness. Bring a flashlight to light up the night even more!

Don’t forget to send us your photos and videos of the CN Tower lit up (using #endotoronto or @TheEndoNetwork), and we will add it to our online stream!

Online – Those across Canada, and those unable to attend, post your pictures of a lit candle or flashlight on facebook & twitter with: @TheEndoNetwork @EndoMarchCanada @MWMFEndo I’m lighting up the night for #endometriosis #awishnoted
