Nathan “Nate” Thompson is on a mission to spread love and unity throughout the state of Arkansas one community at a time.
On Saturday, that community was Strawberry. After receiving some information about the town from Lindsey Dingman, Thompson, who is also known as the Arkansas Running Man and Mount Sinai, scheduled a run through the community.
“After answering a few questions about the founding of Strawberry and our local government, he came and ran down the main roads in Strawberry,” Dingman said.
An Army veteran, Thompson began his journey in March and he plans to continue until he feels his mission is completed.
Dingman said after he ran the streets of Strawberry carrying a United States flag, she and her mother took him to Momma G’s in Lynn to eat breakfast.
“He met several members of our community, including Randy Story, the Hillcrest English teacher who volunteers at the Wings of Honor Museum in Walnut Ridge,” she said.
