The 2016 CHOC Walk in the Park is more than a visit to Disneyland Park; it’s a celebration of the community. The Walk is an opportunity for participants to support an extraordinary organization, a chance for families to thank the doctors and nurses that cared for their children, and a time for patients to share stories with other families.
This year, join our team to help raise funds for the Children’s Hospital of Orange County!
Why Every Step Counts
As CHOC continues to provide the best available care to our community’s children, your support will help ensure that every child in need will receive medical care, regardless of their family’s ability to pay.
CHOC Walk in the Park History
Throughout this event’s 26-year history, CHOC Walk in the Park presented by the Disneyland Resort has raised more than $26 million to help support care, services, education and research for families of children undergoing medical treatment.
In 2015, the Annual Passholder team included 748 participants who raised more than $119,000! Let’s continue to show what APs can do in 2016!
An Exciting Walk – with Character!
As a participant in the 2016 CHOC Walk in the Park, you will enjoy a family-friendly 5K walk through Disneyland Park, Disney California Adventure Park and the Downtown Disney District. Along the way, you will have unique photo opportunities as some of your cherished Disney friends cheer you on at the event.
After you cross the finish line, the celebration continues in the Downtown Disney District where event sponsors, shops and restaurants have special offers for all participants.

*Team members earn incentives based on the amount of committed funds they have recorded by the registration closing date of 3:00PM PST on October 22, 2016 (the “Committed Funds”) and the amount of the Committed Funds actually collected and paid to CHOC by the collection deadline (the “Collected Funds”). All fundraising commitments must be delivered or paid to CHOC by 5:00PM PST on or before November 15, 2016. Cash and Checks can be mailed to the CHOC Foundation office and must be post marked no later than November 15, 2016. CHOC will use the donation information and records of collected funds to determine the team members who have earned the incentives. The incentives may not be redeemed for cash or substituted. All incentives and information are subject to restrictions and change without notice. To earn the pin, team members must have at least $75 of Collected Funds. To determine the first 125 team members who earned the Messenger Bag, team members will be ordered, from the earliest to the latest, by the date and time of when their Committed Funds reach $250. Messenger bags will be sent to the first 125 team members on this list who also have $250 of Collected Funds.
** A team member must be at least 18 years old and a resident of and physically located in the United States to be eligible to earn the Signature Suite stay. The eligible team member with the highest Collected Funds will earn the one-night stay.

The specific Signature Suite will be chosen by Disney and may not be identified in advance. If the member who earned the suite stay does not respond to the notification of such earned incentive within the designated time frame, the incentive may be forfeited. The suite stay is subject to availability and may not include holiday weekends. Stay must be booked and redeemed within one year of notification of earning the incentive. The stay is non-transferable. The team member must stay in the suite with his/her guests.
