Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) June 26, 2008 — Here’s the latest Atlanta breast cancer news…
On Monday, July 28, all 18 Greater Atlanta-area Massage Envy clinics will provide free 1-hour therapeutic massage sessions to any man or woman to benefit the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Greater Atlanta Affiliate.
“Anyone who makes an appointment for July 28 will receive a free, one-hour therapeutic massage from any of the 18 Atlanta-area Massage Envy clinics,” said Norm Klemmer, North Georgia Regional Developer for Massage Envy.
Klemmer said every Massage Envy clinic in the Atlanta area will be fully-staffed with licensed massage therapists and every penny collected during the fundraiser will be donated to Komen Greater Atlanta. The money will be spent on breast cancer research and local breast health programs serving Atlanta women. During 2008, Massage Envy will make a minimum guaranteed donation of $250,000 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure through the Massage for the Cure program. This is the first year for Massage for the Cure in Atlanta.
