Freezin for a Reason started in 2013 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 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. All Proceeds benefit Arkansas Children’s Foundation, which supports the pediatric hospitals in the state as well as the Arkansas Children’s Research Institute.
Freezin for a Reason 2020 is scheduled for February 1, 2020 and is for runners and walkers of all abilities. We offer a certified 10K & 5K course as well as the Lap for Life for families and their children to take one lap around the track to honor all those past and present patients of Arkansas Children's Hospital. Children and strollers are welcome at all events. All registered participants will receive a t-shirt (if registered by January 11, 2020). We will also have free food and lots of free fun kids activities like bounce houses, face painting, games, and more.
