Freezin' for a Reason race to benefit Children's Hospital

The Faulkner County Circle of Friends chapter, a group of individuals working to raise funds and awareness for Arkansas Children’s Hospital, will be having their 2nd annual Freezin’ for a Reason 2K Family Run, 5K and 10K on Saturday, Feb. 1 in Conway.

The idea of the race came about from the chapter wanting to honor the memory of Charlotte and Stella Mulhearn, two children from Conway who received treatment at Arkansas Children’s Hospital.

“I was ready to go across the country for Stella’s treatment, but her best chance was at ACH,” said Amanda Mulhearn, mother of Charlotte and Stella. All proceeds from Freezin’ for a Reason will directly benefit Arkansas Children’s Hospital.

Last year there were more than 349,000 patient visits at ACH including 13,371 from Faulkner County. For more information on Circle of Friends, please contact Stephanie Goodwin at 501-764-0333
