It’s no lie that Texas is a big state. As the second largest state in U.S., it’s nearly 1,000 miles from El Paso in the west to Orange in the east. Most would never consider venturing this route. Even by car, it would take you over 13 hours to drive.
But Jason Arcemont isn’t taking a car.
And he’s not taking a plane.
He’s going to run.
That’s right. He’s going to run all 855 miles.
Jason has always enjoyed the thrill of sports and the art of adventure. He first heard about Love146 when Rob Morris spoke at a local church in the Houston area.
Human trafficking had become a hot topic in Houston and Jason wanted to help. Many have heard of the problem, but few actually understand the dynamics and root of human trafficking.
With that, Jason decided to run to raise awareness about the issue and funds for our work.
In preparation for his run across Texas, Jason has logged up to 110 miles of practice a week! It’s safe to say that the road to end exploitation requires a long journey — no pun intended.
Jason’s run across Texas will be a world record, but Jason said he hopes that it will be more than that… for him and for Love146:
“I want run for these organizations. I want to run for those held in captivity.”
Running has always been a passion of Jason’s, but when you run with a purpose, when you run for freedom, the run becomes life changing.
“I’ll do the crazy part.”
He’ll practice, he’ll train, he’ll run. But you and I can make his run worth it! Share his story and journey with him across the state of Texas. You don’t have run to follow him… thank goodness!
