The American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) is the official provider of seated-massage therapists for the Energizer Breast Cancer 3-Day events across the country.
The Breast Cancer 3-Day benefits Susan G. Komen for the Cure, an organization working to find a cure for breast cancer.
AMTA members are volunteering 10-minute seated massage to walkers on each Friday and Saturday night at the events in 15 cities nationwide.
“This is a heartfelt expression of the commitment of AMTA members to give back to the community,” said AMTA President Judy Stahl. “Volunteering and giving to the community are things our association and our members care about.”
At each event, 2,000 to 4,000 walkers cover 60 miles in three days and camp for two nights to raise money for breast-cancer prevention.
