This Sunday I will be joining the American Massage Therapy Association to celebrate (massage, relax and rejuvenate!) the participants of Hershey's Tour de Pink! This is an amazing event for Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the Young Survival Coalition. The YSC is the premier international organization dedicated to the critical issues unique to young women and breast cancer. Sponsored by Hershey's - this bike ride starts in Hershey, PA and travels over 200 miles to end right here in New York City! Each rider raises at least $2,500 to hop on their bike and spread awareness, support research and create a strong community - built on quality and quantity for women diagnosed with breast cancer ages 40 and under.
I just found out that I am being welcomed by the AMTA as a student volunteer - so even thought I will have a small role to play in the event, I know that I will be learn so much from this group of giving LMT's. Breast Cancer Awareness is such an important cause, filled with giant hearts - and I consider myself honored to be able to lend a hand!
