I have decided to join a global movement that is bringing much needed attention to cancers that affect men. I’m doing this by growing a Moustache this Movember, the month formerly known as November. My commitment is to grow a moustache all November and I am hoping that you will support my efforts by making a donation. The funds raised go to the Prostate Cancer Foundation and the Lance Armstrong Foundation (LIVESTRONG).
What many people don’t know is that 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime and testicular cancer is the most common cancer in men aged 18-35. Facts like these have convinced me I should get involved.
To make a donation, you can either:
• Click this link http://us.movember.com/mospace/146237/ and donate online using your credit card or PayPal account , or
• Write a check payable to ‘Movember Foundation’, referencing my Registration Number 146237 and mailing it to: Movember Foundation, PO Box 2726, Venice, CA 90294-2726.
All donations are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.
The Prostate Cancer Foundation will use the money raised by Movember to fund research to find better treatments and a cure for prostate cancer.
The Lance Armstrong Foundation will use the money raised by Movember to fund:
• The LIVESTRONG Young Adult Alliance program which has the goal of improving survival rates and quality of life for young adults with cancer between the ages of 15 and 40.
• Research initiatives to further understand the biology of adolescent and young adult cancers.
For more details on how the funds raised from previous campaigns have been used and the impact Movember is having please go to .
Thank you and Happy Thanksgiving from Bo and Dakine :)

On November 1st I was having a flatland session (as I always do) with only Dakine at the Target parking garage in what I call my home area, the South Bay. Apparently I slammed directly to my face without any assistance from my hands and was knocked out. Once awake I phoned a friend to find out what I was even doing and then I began to call all of my local friends because I couldnt figure out where I was! I couldnt even recognize my home streets but somehow I had packed up my bag, bike, and dog and was driving around trying to locate Torrance Medical. As I was driving I kept forgetting what I was doing so all I remember is I kept "waking up" and would be driving down the street! Really scary!!
