DAY TO GO
I am passionate about massage.
I am passionate about running.
I am priviledged to be able to combine my passion for both of these with Team Massage Therapy Foundation - Running for Research!
Over the past dozen years, I have been fortunate enough to support my children and my clients though the practice of massage. In honor of those years and those lives I've touched, my goal is to raise $12,000 to further massage reserach, education, and community awareness.
We can only grow and become better and more with the help of others! The donations here are the foundations for more expanded, effective, and available massage practices in the future - which means more help and support for each individual touched by massage.
Running is 'me' time. It is the balance between work, responsiblities, family, friends, and life's events. You can run in any weather, in any location, at any time of day. It is a universal 'medicine.' I view massage much the same.
Massage therapists play a big role in the Boston Marathon by helping athletes at all levels prepare and recover from this great event. We are grateful for the opportunity to participate in the John Hancock Non-Profit Marathon Program to bring more awareness to the benefits of massage and the need for more massage research funding.
All donations for this fundraiser go to the Foundation, and help us to continue to advance the knowledge and practice of massage therapy by supporting scientific research, education, and community service.
