Wagga council shows support for endometriosis campaign

Wagga Wagga City Council is showing its support for endometriosis sufferers by lighting trees with a golden glow for the month of March as part of its Endo Enlightened campaign.

Council says trees along the median strip along Fitzmaurice Street will take on a yellow glow each evening.

The Endo Enlightened campaign encourages landmarks and businesses to turn yellow as a demonstration of hope and support to raise awareness of the disease which affects one in nine females.

In addition to the lighting up the trees, an endometriosis themed display of books and other resources has also been developed by the Wagga Wagga City Library.

Manager Library Services, Christine Bolton, is encouraging local community members to stop in at the display during the month of March.

“We are pleased to support this initiative to highlight endometriosis through the Endo Enlightened campaign,” Ms Bolton said.

“We have identified related books and digital resources that will assist people to learn more about this condition.

“QR codes have been created to ensure that endometriosis information is easy to access and immediately available on any smart device.

“Endometriosis Australia has also provided us with information sheets and pamphlets, along with Endo Enlightened badges, which you can pick up at the display stand.”

The ground lights in Fitzmaurice Street will light up the trees between dusk and dawn.
