The Massage Therapy Foundation (MTF) has announced its 2017 Boston Marathon Running for Research Team who will join nearly 30,000 runners for the 121st Boston Marathon on April 17, 2017. This will be the Foundation’s fifth consecutive year participating in the John Hancock Non-Profit Marathon Program, and this year’s team includes Christine Bailor-Goodlander, a registered nurse and a massage therapist and a board member of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) for the New York Chapter, and licensed massage therapists, including Vincent Dufort, Jodi Newman, and Collette Wilson. The team will raise money for its fundraising goal of $60,000 and create awareness for MTF leading up to the race. Last year, the MTF Running for Research team raised a total of $45,800. “The Massage Therapy Foundation is thrilled to welcome our official Running for Research 2017 team,” says president Jerrilyn Cambron, LMT, Ph.D. “Along with running one of the most prestigious marathons in the world, this year our team will be fundraising to help us continue our work to advance the massage therapy profession. We wish the best of luck to Team MTF.” Follow the MTF Running for Research team this year as they share their stories and track their progress on the Massage Therapy Foundation team webpage.
