Collaboration between Lane Massage and Eugene Marathon organizers was once again a wonderful success. Massage students, who gave some 500 free massages at last year’s race, were in high demand this year as well. A Register Guard article, titled “Going the Distance” made mention of their work. Here’s an excerpt:
Paramedics on hand at the finish line got to enjoy watching the race with no hospital runs, at least through late morning. But a free massage station beneath the grandstands resembled a military field hospital. It had 25 tables and was staffed by students from the Lane Community College massage program. By four hours into the race, the tables were all in use and a crowd of stiff and sore runners sat in a makeshift waiting room for their turns.
Lane Massage is proud to be represented so professionally by our exceptional students, and to play such a welcome role in events that bring our community together!
