Dr. Martin Mankey Gives Back to UW
Dr. Martin G. Mankey specializes in all conditions of the foot and ankle; from ankle sprains to congenital deformities of the foot, he’s seen it all. Although it is never an easy journey, his training in becoming an orthopedic surgeon led him to completing his residency at UW Medical.
For over 15 years, Dr. Mankey has donated his medical expertise, time and money to the sports medicine department at the University of Washington. It’s his way to show gratitude for the experience and knowledge they provided him.
One of his favorite ways to give back to UW is to volunteer as a consulting physician for the school’s sports teams. Through this, he has served athletes such as Isaiah Stanback, Brandon Roy, Isaiah Thomas, and record setting pole vaulter Brad Walker.
“Brad Walker returned from offseason foot surgery to post one of the finest seasons ever by a UW vaulter, solidifying his sport as the top pole vaulter in school history with a UW-record vault of 18-6”
With this, Dr. Mankey has also donated an Endowed Athletic Scholarship to a UW athlete every year since 2006. This provides the student-athletes with financial assistance so that they can attend the University of Washington and participate in a D1 athletic program when they might not have otherwise been able to.

“With every year that passes- I become more aware and grateful for the extremely special opportunity that I have been given here at UW. When I was young going to Husky football games I dreamed of someday playing soccer, but didn’t know if it would be financially possible. It is because of you and your support, that I am finally able to pursue my dreams here at UW- and for that, I cannot thank you enough Dr. Mankey”
– Kari Davidson (Women’s Soccer)
Endowments provide Husky supporters a vehicle through which they can leave an individual or family legacy and have an impact on student-athletes’ lives forever. This type of gift is an investment in the financial success of the Husky program now and in the future, regardless of local, state or national economic ups and downs.
