For the second consecutive year, J.B. Hunt is hosting the Arkansas Run for the Fallen Traveling Memorial outside its corporate offices in Lowell. The memorial includes a 3×5-foot American flag and short biography for each of the 145 Arkansas service members who have died while serving since September 11, 2001. It is open to the public, and visitors are encouraged to walk among the flags and read about the lives of the fallen.
Arkansas Run for the Fallen, the nonprofit responsible for the traveling memorial, works to memorialize fallen Arkansas service members and provide support to their families. In addition to the traveling memorial, the non-profit organizes an annual run that includes one mile for each Arkansan who has died while serving on active duty since September 11, 2001. The 8th Annual Arkansas Run for the Fallen is scheduled for March 15-17, 2019. The organization and J.B. Hunt are both contributors to Wreaths Across America, an annual nationwide effort to place a wreath on every veteran headstone during the holiday season.
