Nathan Nordstrom and John Combe are part of Team Massage Therapy Foundation: Running for Research!
AMTA is proud to support them as they promote MTF and our shared commitment to research on the benefits of massage therapy.
What motivated you to sign up for this marathon and fundraising experience?
John: I have always been passionate about MTF. After volunteering for a number of years to help raise funds for research, it felt natural to put my name in the hat. Boston is most runners' dream!
Nathan: Anyone who knows me knows I love fundraising for MTF. I signed up because I believe research is one of the best ways for our profession to be legitimized within the medical professions. My dream is for doctors to say, “Oh good, there is a massage therapist on staff. Please send this patient to them for soft tissue manipulation.”
I am asking for your help and support. Massage therapy as a profession needs research to show it is a viable health care profession. If you are a massage therapist, a student or an avid client, please donate to this cause. I hope to find 2,000 people like you to donate a minimum of $15 to help move this profession forward.
Contribute to their goals!
