Ready to make a difference? Join me on Sunday, August 26th for the 28th Annual Choc Walk. This community fundraiser supports Children’s Hospital of Orange County and the children they help on a daily basis. As a non-profit hospital, CHOC relies on community support in the way of donations. This funding allows them to focus on the needs of children and their families with first-class care and state-of-the-art facilities, close to home.
CHOC Walk takes place on Sunday, August 26th. The fun kicks of at 6:15 a.m. with an opening ceremony on Main Street USA (Disneyland). Registrants will enjoy the sights and sounds of the park while walking a 5K (3 miles) through Disneyland® Park, Disney California Adventure® Park before it opens to the public. The fun ends at Downtown Disney® District where sponsors, hospital support groups, shops and restaurants have special offers just for walkers.
Sound like fun? Join us in helping raise funds for health care programs, education and research for our local, Southern California kids. Registration is still open and can be found at www.chocwalk.org. Real-time event information can be found on Facebook and Twitter or by following #chocwalk.
Each year all of us at CHOC Children’s look forward with excitement to CHOC Walk, as presented by our good friends at the Disneyland Resort,” said Kimberly Chavalas Cripe, president and CEO, CHOC Children’ s. “This yearly event is an unforgettable experience where hope, love, compassion, and remembrance, are celebrated by our patients – current and former – and their families, as well our dedicated doctors, nurses and other medical staff, plus the incredible and supportive ‘Cast Members’ of the Disneyland Resort.”
