AMTA California Chapter Calendar
This is the 12th annual event with some 3,000+ Marines and their families from 3rd Track. Arrive on base by 10 am and you will be off base by 5pm. Bring your tables and supplies. You will be working on the beach, on top of platforms, with a great view of the festivities and the ocean. Other community organizations will be participating with free food, fun, games, music, and more. This is a great event celebrating “FAMILY”.
** Please commit to Michel as soon as possible if you are planning to participate. This event requires your contact information ahead of time for access onto the base.**
This is the 11th year we have participated in this event. We will be providing post-event massage to the athletes completing 100 miles (or less). Volunteers are guaranteed 1 nights (possibly 2 if space is available) shared room accommodations, carpooling stipend, T-shirt, door prizes, free food and SWAG bag. All of this and a great location near Hearst Castle, on the coastline.
**She lives in MA, 3hrs ahead of CA time, DO NOT CALL AFTER 7PM**
Burn Scar Massage Therapy offers the following learning criteria: Learn to identify varying degrees of burns and the body systems they affect. Learn various psychological and emotional issues faced by burn survivors that can potentially lead to an ”emotional release” during massage. Learn the positive indications as well as the negative contraindications posed by massaging burn survivors. Learn the proper burn scar massage protocol to treat the various degrees of burns in the different stages of recovery.
This IRONMAN® is one that allows members of the military to qualify for the World’s Championship and has about 75% military participation. We will be providing post-event massages to those athletes and servicemen/women on the Boardwalk of Imperial Beach. Parking is provided to early arrivals. Arrive by 8am – Done by 5pm. Food, T-shirt, music and ocean view are there for all of us to enjoy.
Please contact Kevin for more information.
The world’s largest gathering of the burn community will return to Anaheim, CA this October! Join Phoenix Society in sunny California for the 31st Annual Phoenix World Burn Congress (WBC). This life-changing experience will fill you with inspiration as you serve the burn community. Volunteers are vital to the success of the Congress. Without you, we could not provide the supportive community and tools that burn survivors need to thrive. IF you have completed any of the Burn Scar Training Workshops, you are eligible to participate. *You do not have to volunteer every day.
