Jason Arcemont is a creative entrepreneur, dedicated family man and major athlete. He has participated in countless marathons, races and daily neighborhood jogging routines. With his need for speed balanced with his heavy heart for the shocking number of enslaved children in The Lone Star State, Jason has found a way to unite these interests. Thus, Texas Freedom Run is born.
Jason serves as the owner of BrightBox, Inc, a Houston-based brand marketing firm. From juggling the demands of the office with his role at home as husband and father, Jason strives to fill his life with ways to give back and help support his Houston home and Texas at large. Through his involvement with Tomball’s Resale with a Purpose and several other areas of interest, Jason is an all-around team player. He leads through service and serves others by showing them what a true leader looks like. By his example and discipline, he hopes to ignite a fire across Texas for cultural reform in combating child sex slavery and trafficking in Texas.
Jason’s vision is set out with his wife Amber and supported by their four children: Cory, Nina, Katelynn and Dakota. Both his family and his campaign team support him in this endeavor, realizing the weight of this issue and the steps necessary to change it. Jason is continually thankful for the gift of support and financial donation from all his fellow Texans.

Amber Arcemont was there at the conception of Texas Freedom Run while discovering just how horrific this “hidden monster” was at church one day not so long ago. As co-founder of this endeavor with her husband, Jason, she supports the same vision to see child slavery abolished in the great Lone Star State, and the world at large.
As dedicated wife, mother of four and a general workaholic, Amber works tirelessly to push the fundraising efforts and support media connections within the scope of this campaign. She takes large steps to bring results each step of the way so that Texas Freedom Run can make the greatest impact.
With a generous heart and an eagerness to take action, Amber takes an honorable and much needed background role in being the hands and feet of this campaign. From bringing in sponsorships through her own fundraising team to making media connections along the way for radio spots and TV opportunities, Amber gives her whole heart to this cause. She aims for meaningful results that will change the lives of abused and captive children in our very own community.
Our local contacts have been Kristian Love (Love146 Texas Director of Operations) and Kylie Abegg. Both of which have poured lots of their time into including our team and equipping us to join them in their efforts.

Texas Freedom Run couldn’t make the impact it has and will continue to make without the donation of time, money and skills from so many others. On behalf of the entire campaign, we thank all of our sponsors and partners who have helped elevate this campaign to heights we could not attain by ourselves.
The PR Boutique, led by Karen Henry, leads all of Texas Freedom Run’s public relations and media efforts.
Clear Channel with iHeart Media have donated lengthy and much appreciated airtime to promote the run through public service announcements.
Action Time, a startup business supporting the efforts of Love146, has partnered with us to promote this campaign as well.
Many individuals like Mark Dimas (of Professional Realty Group) and Beth Younger Purpich (Julie Beth Handbags) have helped bring in large donations and host events that raise both awareness and funds in the fight against slavery in Texas. Sole supporters like Gregg Wiley have donated all of Jason’s shoes throughout October.
During the actual month of Jason’s journey, many supporters will be having close aid in helping him through the 850 miles along with facilitating events, fundraising efforts, etc. Among these, Russell Hutson and Ross Saxon have donated their time to drive throughout the month of October along Jason’s route. Eric Setter, photographer, will also join in capturing the entire journey to later fill the pages of our commemorative TXFR book (which all can have with a $50 donation for Love146).
These and so many others continue to support Texas Freedom Run boldly and proudly under the common interest to end child slavery in Texas. We are grateful and humbled by their aid and dedicated passion we share.
