"Being a volunteer for the Seattle Marathon Association is a thrilling and rewarding experience. You have the opportunity to be right down in the mix of all the participants, the hustle and bustle of the city, as well as the exciting emotions that come with being a part of such an exhilarating local community venue. Taking the time to be involved in the community over Thanksgiving weekend is a perfect cap to a great holiday. Do what you can to be involved, and don't hesitate to volunteer. Your patronage will ensure that the marathon will continue to be a community success."

—Holly, Seattle Marathon Volunteer
