This year the CHOC Walk commemorates its 25th silver anniversary while the Disneyland Resort celebrates its Diamond 50th!
CHOC “Walk in the Park” is the largest single pediatric walk event in the nation. It’s also the most unique, with a 5K that takes you through the Disney Resort in Anaheim. Money that is raised through supporting the CHOC Walk helps to support research and care provided by CHOC Children’s. CHOC Children’s is a regional pediatric health care system that includes two hospitals, many primary and specialty care clinics, and four clinical centers of excellence, the CHOC Children’s Heart, Neuroscience, Orthopaedic and Hyundai Cancer Institutes. Walt Disney championed for CHOC and was even on the hospital’s first board of directors 50+ years ago.
There are two ways to participate in the CHOC Walk. Those who want to walk in the event can register at chocwalk.org to join a team or walk as an individual. Those who cannot make it to the walk, can register as a Sleeping Bear. This special designation is for participants who want to raise money and earn CHOC Walk prizes but won’t be at the walk. See, you can still help CHOC and raise money, even from home! “Sleeping Bears” receive a CHOC Walk T-shirt and are eligible to earn prizes from their fundraising efforts.
Participants who raise between $375 and $599 earn one Disneyland Resort 1-Day Disneyland Resort Park Hopper Ticket. Participants who raise $600 or more earn two Disneyland Resort 1-Day Disneyland Resort Park Hopper Tickets.
