Miss A Columnist

Amada Villalobos is a second year Child Adolescence and Development (CAD) major and journalism minor at San Francisco State University. She is the first generation in her immediate family to go to college and is interested in helping under-privileged or overlooked children have the same option. She was a freelance writer for her high school newspaper and did some reporting for the online sports page liveatthegame.com based in the Central Coast of California. Some organizations that she holds dear to her heart are, Advanced Via Individual Determination (AVID), New Door Ventures and Real Opportunities for City Kids (R.O.C.K), because they all have a unique way of reaching children for a better tomorrow. On her off time Amada likes to go running around Lake Merced, bicycling in Golden Gate Park or near Cliff House and hiking on the Lands End trails. She also loves to read and write and has a weird fascination with Farmers Markets and coffee mugs. Amada is hoping to graduate from SFSU on time and continue onto graduate school for her masters in CAD. Her plan is to go to the East Coast, either Boston or New York for Graduate school.

Mustache Dache is a 5K run, that helps to benefit the well being of men, and fight against prostate and testicular cancer. Anyone is allowed to participate in the race, even those without a mustache.

If, however, you cannot naturally grow a mustache, but would still like to have one for race day, you can take advantage of the free face painting stations they will have at the event.

For the first time, there will be a kids run, so it could be an event for the whole family to attend. Each participant will get a free Mustache Dache t-shirt and a Medal in the shape of a mustache.

Following the 5k, there will be food, live music and special events occurring throughout the area, so don’t tire yourself out too quickly.

Mustache Dache is an event to promote to men’s health by supporting the non-profit Movember, an organization whose mission is  to raise awareness for men who have been affected by prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems. Since Mustache Dache started, it has raised over $550 million dollars and has funded over 800 programs in 21 different countries.
