You can be part of Running for Research!

Published: April 7, 2013

First, I would like to thank the AMTA-MA Chapter for the generous donation to my team as we run to raise awareness and support of the Massage Therapy Foundation.

I am honored to be representing the AMTA on the MTF "Running for Research" Boston Marathon Team. Not everyone can run a marathon, but it is exciting to watch and participate. I would like to include YOU in the festivities to show your support for the AMTA and Massage Therapy Foundation. I plan on running with a camera to capture the experience.

I will donate $5 (up to $200) to the Massage Therapy Foundation in AMTA-MA's name for every AMTA or AMTA & MTF sign I see along the 26.2 miles stretch. (The support would really help, especially in those later miles.) If I can snap a picture of you and your sign, I will. Maybe I can even stop to say hello. (It's a good excuse for a rest.) Some of those pictures may end up on my blog, and I would like to pass them on to AMTA National as well.

I am very excited for this wonderful opportunity and I want to share it with all of you.

Every dollar counts and your support is appreciated.

I hope to see you and your signs at the marathon on April 15th!

Note: If you can't be there, The AMTA-MA Chapter will be following Kathy's progress through the race and posting updates on our Facebook and Twitter pages!
