Massage for the Cure is a one day fundraising opportunity held at Massage Envy locations around the United States on September 14, 2010. On that one day, Massage Envy locations will offer one-hour massages for $49. For every massage purchased on that day, Massage Envy will donate $15 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, with a guaranteed minimum donation of $250,000. Furthermore, Massage Envy customers and employees will be encouraged to make additional donations to Komen. These additional donations shall count towards the guaranteed minimum donation. Massage Envy will begin accepting reservations for Massage for the Cure on August 14, 2010 at more than 600 Massage Envy clinics across the country. Appointments can be made by phone or online at www.massageenvy.com. Although massage appointments are strongly encouraged on this day, they are not required to participate in Massage for the Cure. However, most locations are completely booked well in advance of the day. If needed, the massageenvy.com website also has a clinic locator to help find the nearest location.
In addition to the $15 per massage donation for massages purchased on September 14, on that day Massage Envy customers will also be encouraged to make donations in excess of the $49 massage charge. Massage Envy employees will also be encouraged to donate their tips for the day if they choose. Susan G. Komen for the Cure Affiliates who opt in to participate in the Massage for the Cure program will receive 100% of the funds raised in their service area – based on the zip code of the Massage Envy clinic location. Affiliates will also receive 100% of any additional donations provided by customers and employees above and beyond the $15 per massage donation from Massage Envy. Massage Envy has donated more than $1.4 million to Komen for the Cure Affiliates through Massage for the Cure. This year’s goal is to raise more than $500,000.
