There are many ways to make a difference by supporting MTF

Boston Marathon and the John Hancock Marathon Non-Profit Program

The Boston Marathon is the world’s oldest annual marathon and running it is a major “bucket list” item for serious distance runners throughout the world. The John Hancock Marathon Non-Profit Program provides a way for runners who might not otherwise qualify to run this marathon to participate. John Hancock has been the principal sponsor of the Boston Marathon for over 30 years and since 2012 the Massage Therapy Foundation has been grateful for the opportunity to participate in their charity program and invite runners to run and fundraise on our behalf.

Basics of Research Literacy

Take the on-line Basics of Research Literacy (BRL) class, and get continuing education credits while you support the MTF! BRL is an online continuing education course for all massage practitioners and educators, offered in partnership with Education and Training Solutions, LLC. You can explore the basics of incorporating principles of research literacy into your practice or school curriculum at your own pace. For more information and to sign up for the class, click here.

Doing Well By Doing Good
Engage the clients who visit your practice by becoming a part of our Doing Well by Doing Good campaign. Through this campaign, a business pledges the proceeds from one massage per month to MTF, providing the chosen client with a certificate of thanks. Each participating business will receive a table tent and decal to put up in its practice. Show off your support for massage therapy research!
