Sports massage is a growing field, and volunteering at a sporting event can provide massage therapists with valuable sports-massage experience.

An article The Georgetown Record, in Beverly, Massachusetts, announced that massage therapists are needed to volunteer at the August 1 Pan-Massachusetts Challenge charity bike-a-thon.

“Massage, occupational and physical therapists are needed to rub the road out of 5,500 cyclists who will be riding 190 miles in the Pan-Massachusetts Challenge, the annual bike-a-thon and pioneer of the athletic fundraising industry, which today raises more money for charity than any other single athletic event in the country,” the article states.
