#FeelBetterBoston Recap

#FeelBetterBoston Recap

The inaugural #FeelBetterBoston Massage & Community Wellness event over Marathon weekend left people with a smile on their face and genuine appreciation for all that was provided. We knew this being the first time we held such an event that we would be competing with the likes of the infamous BAA Expo and other traditional gatherings over the weekend, but we were pleased to have worked with the guests we had.  In all, we were able to raise close to $4000.00 for the Massage Therapy Foundation & Martin Richard Foundation.  I am so proud of all the volunteers who dedicated their precious weekend time to help so many others to #feelbetter.sports massage boston marathon

Like any new concept, we learned so many things that we can improve upon for next year.  We got some great feedback from our guests, many of whom wondered why they didn’t offer such a concept within the expo halls themselves (hmmmmmmmm). With the amazing support of our sponsors such as Biofreeze, Theraband, Bon Vital and Massage Warehouse, donors left with arm loads full of some amazing product give ways.  In total, we gave away over $5000 worth of products such as massage cremes, sticks, balls, foam rollers, stretch bands, therabands and even massage tables.

If you weren’t able to make it by this year, be sure to block off time next marathon weekend.  The 2ndannual #FeelBetterBoston event will be certain not to disappoint.  If you would still like to make a donation to either charity, please do so by following the links below.

Check out some of the moments we captured from the 2019 #FeelBetterBoston Massage & Community Wellness Event!!
