Massage for the Cure

The perfect opportunity to have a massage and make a difference in efforts to eradicate breast cancer awaits Utahans this September.

On Tuesday, September 15, Massage Envy will host Utah’s second annual Massage for the Cure for Susan G. Komen™ event. One-hour massages will be offered for $35 between 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., of which $10 (plus tips) will be donated to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Additional donations will also be accepted.

All of Massage Envy’s 12 locations along the Wasatch front will participate in this special one-day event. Reservations at any of the locations can be made today, by calling 877-890-3689 (890-ENVY), which will route callers to their clinic of choice.

According to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, an estimated 192,370 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to occur among women in the U.S. during 2009. And, 40,170 women will die from breast cancer this year. It is also estimated that 1,910 men will be diagnosed and 440 men will die of breast cancer during 2009. This year, Massage Envy’s goal is to raise approximately $500,000 by having all clinics across the nation participate in the September 15 event.
