Bike MS

This was the first of 3 rides AMTA CA will be participating at; the second will be the Waves to Wine Ride at the SOMO Village in San Francisco, Saturday, September 9. Again, the MS Society will be promoting the® national locator service.

Our last event with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society (MS Society) will be Saturday, October 14 at the Bay-to-Bay Ride, San Diego.  At this event, not only will the MS Society continue to promote the® national locator service, but we will also be promoting the National Massage Therapy Awareness Week.

If you are interested in volunteering at either of these events, please register through CVENT, via our Chapter’s website ( All of the volunteer massage therapists at these events are AMTA members (professional, graduate, and students). Thank you for your time and service!

Are there Community Outreach Events you would like us to consider participating in as a Chapter (only AMTA members) or Community Outreach Opportunities for anyone to join in? Over the years, we have participated in such events as: Susan G Koeman Breast Cancer Foundation Walks and Runs, Ronald McDonald House, Multiple Sclerosis Society (MS) Rides, March of Dimes, Best Buddies International, RunDisney, Special Olympics, Military Appreciation – Camp Pendleton Family Day and Super Bowl Sunday, Teacher Appreciation, Massage at the Capital, Inter-Collegiate Sports, various other walks, runs, marathons, swims, IRONMAN, and others. 

We would like to be where you are! Supporting those causes that are important to you while promoting the art and science of massage therapy. AND supporting your practice. AND supporting your clients who are participating in these events.  AND having fun while doing so.  Let us know.

AMTA Community Outreach Events (These are events which only AMTA members can volunteer and participate at.) need 6-months’ notice to set everything up. (Yes, there are legalities we have to meet before we, as an association, can participate.).  A current example of these events are the MS Rides we are participating in.

Community Outreach Opportunities (These are “opportunities” for members and non-members to work together.) need 2-3 months’ notice to recruit volunteers.  An example of these are Military Appreciation events and Best Buddies Challenges.

Let us make a difference together! Please let us know by sending an email with your suggestions to
