Each of the runners that is on Team MTF-Running for Research is supportive of the massage therapy profession and making a difference in the lives of the therapists themselves as well as the people that the therapists serve through MTF's programs, services, and grants.

Your generous donations enable the Foundation to grant funds for high-quality, independent research studies that enhance the understanding of therapeutic massage applications and their roles in health-care delivery. You also make it possible for MTF to provide educational webinars, podcasts, infographics, and eBooks —free of charge and accessible to all therapists. Your gifts go towards funding community service grants that bring the benefits of massage therapy to people who desperately need them, but do not typically have access to massage. MTF’s recent grants have supported individuals with cancer, multiple sclerosis, amputations, chronic pain, and Vets with PTSD, among so many others.
