A group of Elkhart County men are starting their cross-country journey spreading good vibes far and wide. 

The group, ARK Project Now, set off Wednesday, May 13, to travel 10,000 miles in 10 weeks, according to 95.3 MNC’s reporting partners, ABC 57

ARK, which stands for “acts of random kindness” was inspired by the movie “Evan Almighty” where, in the movie, God tells Evan that “One act of random kindness at a time” can change the world, according to previous reporting by MNC’s partners at The Elkhart Truth

The group will hit the road in a shiny new RV from Thor, which a handful of local companies pitched in to help purchase, according to The Elkhart Truth. 

ARK’s founder, 21-year-old Alex Radelich recruited his two friends, Dalton Lemert, 21, and Jacob Thatcher, 20, to join him, ABC 57 reports. 

The group aims to make its way back to Elkhart in late July, according to ABC 57.
