BROKEN ARROW, Okla. -- A charity event in Broken Arrow is celebrating a four-year-old boy suffering from a heart disease.

CJ Oden will have the opportunity to ride in a Walmart distribution truck and be a driver for a day. Little CJ's dream is to become a fireman one day.

His parents say he was born with a heart defect and is scheduled to have his fourth heart surgery in Houston in 11 days. 

Today's event will start at 9:30 a.m. this Wednesday at the Walmart located at 3900 E. Hillside Drive.

A group of Walmart truck drivers started the heart charity in Texas to help children in need and make a difference in their lives.

Walmart will be providing little CJ with a shopping spree, a badge, certificate and a trucker driver shirt.
