Our Story Begins
Our story begins with Arkansas Children's Hospital "Camp Sunshine" which was founded in 1991 to promote physical and emotional healing, growth and development of burned children.

Camp Sunshine Day
Beginning in 2009, the 4 wheel drive community banded together to provide a yearly event for the participants of Camp Sunshine. These children are able to spend a day at the Hot Springs Off-Road park which includes a jeep ride followed by lunch.
1st Fun Run
In 2015, we wanted to give back and the Fun-Run event came to life. With nothing more than a few friends gathered for a day and a small raffle we were able to raise $2100.
2nd Annual Fun Run
With our second annual Fun-Run several of our local clubs banded together to help with this event. The Arkansas Crawlers, Salty Jeepers and the Seven Slots Jeep Club worked together to make this a great success. This year we provided meals, trail guides and a really nice raffle. Raising right at $12,000
3rd Annual Fun-Run
Planning the 3rd annual Fun-Run event we had some conflict on dates and then decided the 1st weekend in May would be the best recurring yearly date. Thanks to the Arkansas Crawlers, Salty Jeepers and Seven Slots Jeep club for another great weekend with a great turnout we were able to raise $10,500.
4th Annual Fun-Run
The 4th annual Fun-Run was a huge success! Thanks again to the clubs who helped make this possible. Arkansas Crawlers, Salty Jeepers , Seven Slots Jeep Club and this year The Lone Star Jeep Club not only came to support the event but stepped in as one of our sponsors.
Wonderful weather and a very good time!
We raised just over $17,000 !
New for 2019 - we have formed a non-profit organization Fun-Run Inc with 501©(3) status along with our own Website, Facebook and Instagram account. We feel this will be beneficial for years to come as our organization continues to grow.
