Massage Envy Spa Therapist Raises $11,479 for Therapy Foundation
Massage Envy Spa licensed massage therapist Karen Moers of Jacksonville, Fla., raised $11,479 after being selected by the Massage Therapy Foundation to be part of its “Running for Research Team” at the 2014 Boston Marathon. Throughout Moers’ training, the funds she raised will benefit the Massage Therapy Foundation. Massage Envy Spa kick-started her fundraising with an initial $5,000 donation.
Moers was chosen to represent the brand from among thousands of therapists at the company’s more than 950 locations nationwide. The 2014 Boston Marathon represents Moers’ second chance to complete her mission as a charity runner after the tragic events surrounding the bombings in Boston halted her efforts in 2013. Moers started long-distance running after her father incurred severe brain damage following a motorcycle accident.
