Endurance Race

Marty Seaton

Last week KSMU told a story about a Missouri man who was training for a 100-mile endurance run to raise money for the Alzheimer's Association.  Marty Seaton’s father, Mark Seaton of Highlandville, was diagnosed four years ago with early-onset Alzheimer’s.

Update:  Marty Seaton finished the 100-mile endurance race in 31 hours and 2 minutes.  

Mark Seaton, a lifelong resident of southwest Missouri, has lived for years on 40 acres in Highlandville, just south of Nixa.

His son, Marty, described him as “a great, hardworking guy.”

"He spent 3o plus years working in a grocery store warehouse, raised his two natural kids and several other kids that he adopted and fostered.  A great man in his community, a great father, a great mentor for dozens of people," said Marty Seaton.
