It's time to walk for CHOC!
Every year Disneyland partners with Children's Hospital of Orange County (CHOC)
to raise money for kids in need of medical care.
Last year the CHOC walk brought in over $2.5 million dollars!
This year the goal is $2.7 million and I am so excited to be part of this great effort!
CHOC has been an important part of my life for many years,
beginning with the NICU for my niece born two months early,
to dear friends who rely on CHOC for specialty care,
to their recent groundbreaking for the first pediatric mental health center in Orange County!
I love having CHOC close by for all these reasons!
But this kind of care is not free, and so many times there are children in need of care without insurance.
That's where you can help, by supporting CHOC Walk in the Park at Disneyland!
From the very beginning, Walt Disney himself was an advocate of CHOC.
He served on the very first board of directors over 50 years ago
and provided initial support for the creation of CHOC.
Today Disneyland continues that great relationship by putting on the annual CHOC Walk in the Park!
This year the walk will be on Halloween weekend, so look out for some spooky surprises!
We are always on the lookout for ways to teach our kids to give back,
and the CHOC Walk is the perfect way to do just that!
And how much more fun can it get than a 5K through the happiest place on earth?!
I am so excited to make memories with my daughter while raising money and awareness for a great cause!
CHOC Walk participants can even win prizes by fundraising!
When you raise between $375 and $599, you earn one 1-Day Disneyland Resort Park Hopper Ticket.
Raise $600 or more and you earn two 1-Day Disneyland Resort Park Hopper Tickets!
There are also other discounts available in Downtown Disney on the day of the CHOC Walk!
Please join us on October 30th at Disneyland for the annual CHOC Walk in the Park
and make a difference to children in need!
Hope to see you there!
