2010 Susan G. Komen Houston Race for the Cure

Every year to kick off my birthday celebration weekend, I participate in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure®. Every 68 seconds, somewhere in the world , a woman dies from breast cancer, the most prevalent cancer among women today.

The Komen Race for the Cure® raises money to fund education, screening and treatment programs in our community and supports nation cutting-edge research in hopes of finding the cures.
For all the wives, mothers, daughters, sisters and friends, please consider making a gift today. Together we are saving lives!Please support my fundraising efforts for this cause by making a donation to the Komen Race for the Cure® at Donations are being accepted through November 15, 2010.

This year I had the pleasure of waking with one of my tenants. They are an oil and gas company, which is why we are wearing the PINK hardhats. As usual this event was a lot of fun to participate. Words cannot begin to explain the excitement and inspiration on walk day as you see all the participants, both survivors and supporters. Here are a few pictures form the Houston Komen Race for the Cure®.

This event is very near and dear to me as I have many family and friends who have been effected by breast cancer. Know your risk by learning about your family health history and talking to your health care provider about your own personal risks. Remember, by making healthy lifestyle choices, you may reduce your risk of breast cancer.

Real Men Wear Pink

While watching the game on Sunday, I got so EXCITED to see the football players with pink gloves, shoes, wristbands etc!! Then I noticed it was not only the players, but it was the coaches, referees and the cheerleaders with pink on as well.

Since October is breast cancer awareness month, come to find out the NFL (Players, Coaches, Referees, and Cheerleaders) are wearing PNIK to support the fight against breast cancer and to raise awareness of this important campaign! The football field of all games played in the month of October will have the NFL logo with a pink ribbon stencil, there are even special game balls and pink coins!!!!

Afterwards, all apparel worn at games by players and coaches, the special game balls and pink coins will be auctioned off at special auction ( The proceeds from this auction will benefit the American Cancer Society and as well as other team charities. Fan’s can even join in by purchasing special Pink NFL gear. I’ve ordered my NFL Pink jersey, can’t wait till it comes in so I can sport it on game day! I guess I’m going to be watching a little more football than usual this season.

Check out to read more about the NFL’s campaign.
