The Team Alvarez BJJ 2012 Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Fort Worth, TX was a huge success and a lot of fun for all!  Saturday April 14, 2012 Team Alvarez Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy out of Arlington, TX pulled together for a great cause and helped raise $1,325 for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure and had family members of all ages join in on the race. Some students got out there and ran, jogged and walked to help do what they could to help find a cure for Breast Cancer. Mr. Danny Alvarez, head instructor of Alvarez BJJ and MMA academy had a real close tie to the cause as he lost his aunt Diana Guerra Machul that he was very close to 11 years ago due to breast cancer. It was his wife Mrs. Alvarez’s idea to put together a campaign to help the cause because of all of the families that come together at the Jiu Jitsu academy and knew they would get a lot of support. Mrs. Alvarez’s idea worked as some families donated money and Mr. Alvarez had team t shirts made to help sell at the academy with all the profit being donated. Team Alvarez was able to sell enough t shirts before the donation deadline and donated $500 from academy. Again, it was a great day of families of Team Alvarez BJJ in Arlington, TX enjoying themselves as everyone got out there to do the 5K and get some great exercise to start their Saturday morning and their weekend. Team Alvarez BJJ with their competitive nature looks forward to the next Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure 5K so they can beat what they did today!
