Volunteering at the Seattle Marathon is beneficial not only to the students who are eager to practice their stretching, massage, and manipulation skills, but to the thousands of Athletes who have just finished their race and are looking for comfort and relief from pain. Bastyr Sports Medicine Club in conjunction with the Bastyr Acupuncture team provide a valuable asset to athletes who run the Seattle Marathon. We are a club with over 70 members strong that meet several times a week to practice, review and educate ourselves on techniques that we use for the Seattle Marathon to provide the best care possible to the athletes.
