Freezin for a Reason started in 2012 as a way to honor Charlotte and Stella Mulhearn. Both Charlotte and Stella received treatment at Arkansas Children’s Hospital. Although their stories do not have the happy ending their family would have wanted, The Mulhearn’s wanted to give back to Arkansas Children’s Hospital for the care, love and hope they received while their children were being treated there. In partnership with Faulkner County Circle of Friends, the annual event, Freezin for a Reason was born. We are very excited this is our 4th year for Freezin for a Reason. All Proceeds will benefit Arkansas Children’s Hospital, which is the only pediatric hospital in the state. No Arkansas child is ever turned away from Arkansas Children’s Hospital. Until no child needs Arkansas Children’s Hospital, Arkansas Children’s Hospital need you.
Our event includes a 5K & 10K for runners and walkers of all abilities. We will also have the 1st annual Lap for Life, which is an event for children and their families to take 1 lap around the track as a way to honor past and present patients of Arkansas Children’s Hospital. We will have awards in multiple categories for those serious runners. Wheelchairs, strollers, and children are welcome at all events. We will also have lots of free food and fun for the kiddos including face painting, bounce houses, and games.
We will also have a Pasta Party on Friday February 5, 2016 at 1st United Methodist Church in Conway @ 1610 Prince Street. The Pasta Party is sponsored by the Youth Groups of the church and all proceeds benefit Arkansas Children's Hospital.
Registration is open online until Thursday February 4 at 11:59. Late registration will take place on Friday, February 5, 2015 at the Sporty Runner located in Conway, Arkansas. We will also have registration the morning of the event until 8:30 am.
