‘Loving LIFE’ at Walk for Wheezy

The third annual “Walk for Wheezy” – held in memory of Eloise “Wheezy” Ann Owen – raised $50,000 for Arkansas Children’s Hospital.

The event was held Feb. 25 at Cabot Panther Stadium with approximately 1,000 people in attendance.

Eloise was born with congenital heart disease and spent many hours at Arkansas Children’s Hospital before passing away in 2016. All of the money raised from the event goes to the ACH Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit to provide treatment for children with heart diseases.


ACH is the only comprehensive pediatric heart care center in Arkansas.

Miss Arkansas Maggie Benton and Arkansas Children’s Hospital representative Kait Ross attended as well as Tatum Pinney, an Arkansas Children’s Hospital heart patient and ACH ambassador.
