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.

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!
