THE STORY:

See my blog at beboston.vincentdufort.com

When I grow up, I want to help people. This is why I went back to school a few years ago and became a massage therapist. I love being able to help people in a practical hands-on way.

Another thing I do is I run. I wasn't always a runner. In fact, early on I thought I couldn't run because I didn't know how to pace myself. Now I have completed 3 marathons in the last four years, my first one being the Maine marathon in 2013.

Now I am honored to be invited to run the Boston Marathon as part of the Massage Therapy Foundation team. No, it is not a relay. Each of us will be going from the start line to the finish in Boston in April 2017.

Massage therapists play a big role in the Boston Marathon by helping athletes at all levels prepare and recover from this great event. In fact, I had the pleasure of being a volunteer massage therapist at the Boston marathon as part of my sports massage training a few years ago. It was a cold and rainy day, many runners needed warmth and hot soup!

I am 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. Each of us on Team MTF - Running for Research is related to massage industry in some capacity.

All donations for this fundraiser go to the Foundation, and help the Massage Therapy Foundation continue to advance the knowledge and practice of massage therapy by supporting scientific research, education, and community service.
