The Massage Therapy Foundation announces its Virtual Run/Walk/Roll fundraiser taking place between August 18 – September 18, 2020. Participants of all ages and in every location around the world are invited to pick their favorite 30-minute activity and get active to raise funds to support research, education, and community service to enhance the massage therapy profession.

“Some will run their first mile, others will attempt their farthest distance on a bike, while many will walk their dogs through the park. MTF welcomes all to participate while staying COVID-19 safe and responsible. What a wonderful way to help the Foundation celebrate its 30th anniversary by getting active for 30 minutes. It is the perfect distance for an entire family to join together and achieve a goal to support the profession and bring benefits of massage to underserved populations,” said MTF’s President, Doug Nelson, LMT, BCTMB.

The registration is a $30 donation. Registration, FAQ and resources are available at

A special thank you to premier sponsor American Massage Therapy Association and gift sponsor Massage Warehouse. Sponsorship opportunities are still available.
