Massage therapists have a unique opportunity to participate in a major
sporting event and provide their service to athletes. Certification
candidates may use this event to earn hours toward CSMTA Certification,
according to the CSMTA.

“This is a great opportunity to make contacts as well as the chance to get new clients to your clinic,” the CSMTA said.

Along with getting a high-five from PACHI the Games mascot, volunteers will receive:

•    A sneak peek of the Pan Am Games Opening Ceremony created by Cirque du Soleil.
•    Access to exclusive TORONTO 2015 promotions and events.
•    A discount on TORONTO 2015 merchandise.
•    Games-time access to public transit with accreditation.
•    Meals and refreshments during shifts.
•    The opportunity to receive a volunteer certificate. (It will look great on your wall!)
•    Invaluable volunteer hours and work experience.
•    The chance to meet international athletes, officials and sport association leaders.
•    Comprehensive training to ensure you’re well prepared and confident on day one.
•    The opportunity to network, make lifelong friends and try your hand at something new.
•    The chance to have fun and be at the heart of the hottest event in 2015.
•    And if that’s not enough, you’ll also receive a snazzy uniform.


The Toronto Pan-Am Games will be held July 10 to 26, 2015 and the Parapan Am Games will take place August 7 to 15, 2015.
