CHOC Walk at Disneyland Needs Our Help!
When you live in the OC, you know about 2 things. Disneyland and CHOC. We, as a family, have ben to Disneyland and we’ve been to CHOC as a family. In both places, we’ve experienced memories we will never forget. Of course, one place I’d rather be more than the other, while I could live without stepping foot inside. Still, As OC residents, I am glad I have both places close by.
The Walk is a time when families express their thanks to the doctors and nurses that cared for their children and share their memories with other families. The vibe at CHOC Walk is simply amazing. Well, first of all, you’re at Disneyland. Second, you get a firsthand look at the impact Children’s Hospital of Orange County has had on the community. I should know! My kids have been patients there. As you walk through the parks, you’ll be joined by some of Disney’s favorite character and friends! On Sunday, October 30, 2016, the walk will take you through Disneyland, Disney California Adventure Park, and the Downtown Disney District.
This year’s CHOC Walk will be extra spooktacular as we celebrate the Walk on Halloween weekend. CHOC Walkers will need to raise a minimum of $85 to participate, and all proceeds will benefit health care programs, education, and research for CHOC Children’s and CHOC at Mission.
