There are many ways to make a difference by supporting MTF

Current and Upcoming:

Boston Marathon / John Hancock Marathon Non-Profit Program
The Boston Marathon is the world’s oldest annual marathon 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 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. Since our team’s first race in 2013, this program has raised $531,074 for MTF and has helped us bring awareness of massage therapy benefits to a wide audience.

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!
