PINK NINJAS: Save the Tatas Mission

Cancer is a terrible disease. It's claimed the lives of several of my relatives (my grandma is currently fighting it), and it continues to steal lives from all over the world.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month helping spread the word against it. Breast cancer is the most common kind among American women, but we can fight it. I was very pleased to participate in the Susan G. Komen race for the cure in Dallas. I highly encourage everyone to continue donating so research can someday help save the lives of all those mothers, sisters, friends, cousins, nieces, daughters, wives, aunts, grandmas and every other woman who touch our lives everyday.

Have to admit besides the fact that our team's costume kicked ass, I really loved all the support from the huge crowd who came out. See you there next year!

How cute are these men? Plenty of men came out to show their support, including my brother.

Eli, brother, and Carmen, girlfriend.

The night before we stayed up until 1:30am decking out our costumes. Of course we woke up 3 hours later which wasn't so fun, but once we saw the crowd it was all worth it.

And the finish line!!
