The Northern New Jersey Massage Envy locations increased their donation amount from last year, raising $40,944 in one day for the Arthritis Foundation, which greatly surpassed last year’s total of $25,467. The success of this year’s event can be attributed to the support from Massage Envy members, guests and Arthritis Foundation volunteers and staff.
