The American Diabetes Association is seeking volunteer massage therapists for the Tour de Colorado, the bike ride that raises funds for diabetes research and education.

This is the biggest fundraiser for the American Diabetes Association, with more than 80 rides across the country.

Last year the Colorado ride had more than 1,600 riders and was the third largest in the U.S. in terms of funds raised, collecting over $800,000.

This year’s event is on Sat., Aug. 20, and begins and ends at the Boulder County Fairgrounds in Longmont. Organizers are looking for massage volunteers between the hours of noon-4:00. Volunteers would need to bring their own table or chair, but can put out business cards or other material to solicit future clients. Time and travel expenses are fully deductible as a charitable expense.

Interested individuals can email or call: Kelly Jackson 720-855,1102 #7020,, or Toni Mench, 303-947-5384,
