Support Team Massage Therapy Foundation: Running for Research

The Massage Therapy Foundation (MTF) has chosen its team of runners for the 2013 Boston Marathon. Team Massage Therapy Foundation: Running for Research will raise money for the MTF with bibs received through the John Hancock Non-Profit Bib program. We’re excited to announce that an AMTA member, Kathy Borsuk, was chosen to receive a bib. Kathy is a licensed massage therapist from New Jersey who started her journey to becoming a runner just over one year ago. She achieved her goal of completing one 5K per month in 2012, and now she is thrilled to join Team MTF for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to run the 2013 Boston Marathon while supporting the massage therapy profession. You can learn more about Kathy and help her reach her fundraising goal through her Crowdrise page: http://www.crowdrise.com/kathyborsuk
