The Inaugural Some Run Seagoville on October 2, 2021 truly had something for everyone. There was a timed 5K run, an untimed 5K walk and roll, and even a half-mile shuffle for anyone looking for a shorter distance.
Hosted by Pamela Digby, in memory of her son Jared and in honor of all kids with A-T, the Some Run was a celebration of hope.
Some run, some walk, some roll and some shuffle, but we all make a difference.
Participants ranged in age from 0 to 87 (shout-out to Ms. Peggy!) and included everyone from professional wrestlers to the city mayor to several local A-T warriors and their families.
Professional wrestlers? Yes, that’s right! Event participants challenged wrestler Slam Shady to an arm wrestle with the stipulation that the loser donates $5 to A-TCP. A-T warrior Alex bravely arm wrestled Slam Shady and WON!
The city mayor was also in attendance. At the opening ceremony, he declared October 2 to be Jared Digby Day in Seagoville. It was a powerful and moving reminder of the Some Run’s purpose – to bring us closer to a cure for A-T.
Pamela, along with the city of Seagoville and the Seagoville Chamber of Commerce, pulled out all the stops to create this fun, inclusive and impactful event – we cannot thank them enough for their hard work. We are already fielding questions from participants about next year’s Some Run!
The Some Run importantly reminds us of how everyone has a role to play in finding the cure to A-T – some run, some walk, some roll, some shuffle, some volunteer, some sponsor, some host, some fundraise and together we are unstoppable!
