I’m thrilled to once again be participating in this year’s CHOC Walk in the Park at Disneyland on Sunday, October 30! CHOC Walk in the Park is an annual fundraiser to raise money for Children’s Hospital of Orange County (where Disneyland is located). CHOC Walk in the Park is a three mile walk through Disneyland, Disney California Adventure, and Downtown Disney before they open to the general public. In it’s 26 year history, the CHOC Walk has raised $24 million dollars. WOW! This will be the third year of the Disneyland Brides and Grooms (and Family and Friends) walking as a group, and it’s such a fun way to support our community!
What is CHOC Walk? During your early morning walk through Disneyland, you’ll meet other Disney fans and even see some friendly characters along the way! In past years we saw Peter Pan and Hook, several princesses, and even the fairies from Sleeping Beauty! A highlight for me was seeing Atta and Flik – I haven’t seen them out in years!!!
The best part about the Walk is seeing all the passionate teams who are brought together to raise money for charity, and spending time with friends! Even through it was early, everyone was so happy and having a good time … how could you not, you’re at Disneyland!
You can click here to read my recaps from past CHOC Walks. Also, my friend Lisa put together this quick video from a recent CHOC Walk!
You can join as an individual walker, OR you can join our Disneyland Brides and Grooms team! Right now we have over 10 awesome team members who have raised just over $500 for CHOC! And there’s always room for more members! Family and friends may join us too, and strollers are welcome! I hope you will consider joining us. We will be rocking our Bride and Groom ears and representing the wonderful Disney weddings community! Disney Brides Rock!!
CHOC Walk participants also have the option to purchase a discounted ticket for Disneyland park! A one-park ticket is $55 and a park hopper ticket is $83. This is a GREAT deal! Learn more on the CHOC Walk website.
If you can’t join us in person this year, please consider making a donation to our team. Last year our team raised $2200 and this year we have a goal of $2500! You can donate as little as $5, and every dollar counts! You can view our team roster here and help a team member reach their minimum fundraising goal of $85.
