GRC Fundraising Partnership With Georgetown Sports Massage

This is to announce a generous fundraising effort that Terrel Hale, owner of Georgetown Sports Massage, is undertaking on behalf of the GRC Race Team. Terrel is a licensed massage therapist and RRCA certified coach who specializes in treating runners and triatheletes. Terrel has experience working with elite-level runners and has served on the staff of the Cherry Blossom Ten Miler and the Summer Olympic Games. He has expressed an interest in working regularly with the GRC Race Team runners and supporting the team and, to that end, has offered to provide his services to any GRC runner, friend, or family member who makes a donation to the Race Team (Terrel has also made an in kind sponsorship of Father's Day 8k). Here's how it works: book an appointment(s) with Terrel by phone (301-943-8738) or email ( He has studios in Tenleytown and Rockville and has a table at the Chevy Chase Running Company. Instead of paying Terrel, however, submit your donation to me (checks made payable to "Georgetown Running Company"). Whatever you choose to donate will go directly to support the team. I encourage everyone to take Terrel up on this offer not only because all of the money raised will directly benefit the team -- in the form of travel expenses, race entries, and equipment -- but also because Terrel's talents will help us achieve our athletic goals. Terrel does a fantastic job and he has helped me overcome some very nasty overuse injuries such as ITBS and Planter Fasciitis. This is a great opportunity to raise money for the team and get the benefit of sports massage.
