Healing Hands for Arthritis hosted by Massage Envy

On Wednesday, September 28, 2016 Massage Envy will host the 6th annual Healing Hands for Arthritis.  For each person who receives a one-hour facial or massage during this one-day event, Massage Envy will donate $10 to the Arthritis Foundation.  In addition, Murad®, Wyndmere, Biofreeze® and Bon Vital'® will also be donating 10% of sales made in Massage Envy clinics to the Arthritis Foundation.  

Arthritis is the #1 cause of disability in America, affecting one in five adults and more than 300,000 children.  Massage Envy is dedicated to supporting the Arthritis Foundation by helping those impacted to overcome, through therapeutic massage, the everyday battles brought on by arthritis. All 5 Massage Envy Spa clinics in the Triad area will be participating in this effort to help find a cure for arthritis.  Since 2011, this one‐day nationwide event has raised over $4M for the Arthritis Foundation.

To make an appointment for the Healing Hands for Arthritis event, go to
MassageEnvyTriad.com and find your clinic and phone number, or call 1-800-944-ENVY. Reservations are now being accepted on a first‐come, first‐served basis.  Tax-deductible in-clinic donations for the Arthritis Foundation will also be accepted during the event.

Over the years, The Real World Program for youth has been successful in helping young people develop life skills, including carving out educational and career plans, learning the basics of getting and keeping a job, and locating appropriate housing, but mostly, it has introduced youth to the variety of options that are available to young people. These youth quickly learn it can be a real jungle out there!
Credits, debits, assets, liabilities, debt ratio—
Welcome to the Jungle!
Real World presents Money Jungle  is a  1 hour simulation of the real world. In hourly increments, youth will learn to write a check, maintain a register, use an ATM, apply for a loan, request a credit report, and more. The event will address decisions youth make in  lifestyle choices (such as housing, transportation, leisure, etc.). Youth will be provided a salary  and challenged to take their salary and develop a budget based on every day needs (food, electricity, rent, etc.).

At 5:18 you will see a testimonial from one of our youth that went through the simulation.
