5 Reasons to Join CHOC Walk Today!

Things have been a bit different for CHOC Walk. Traditionally, thousands of people would descend on the Disneyland Resort very early on a Sunday morning. Together, they walk through the parks to raise money and awareness for the Children’s Hospital of Orange County. However, due to the pandemic, this has not been an option and CHOC Walk has gone virtual! This year, the event will be virtual and be taking place on May 22, 2021, at 1:00 PM!

It will be a celebration of the last 30 years of the CHOC Walk and all that CHOC does for the children of Orange County. Personally, I can tell you the difference this hospital makes for these kids. I have several people in my life who have had kids helped by CHOC. This may be on the surface a fun event with fun people but I can tell you it makes a huge difference. Young lives are changed and saved at CHOC. You can be a part of that. I urge you to join us today as we support CHOC and the children who visit!
