After 30 years of walking for the kids, Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) and Disneyland® Resort have reimagined their annual fundraising collaboration to make this year more memorable and special. For one night only, Disney California Adventure (DCA) park will provide exclusive experiences for CHOC supporters including access to the park’s attractions, dining, and shopping! (In past years, the event takes place before the park opens). Starting at 5 pm on Saturday, August 27, 2022, CHOC supporters who raise $250+ and secure their ticket will enjoy the park before the celebration begins. Get more details below! From 9 pm to midnight, DCA will become exclusive to CHOC supporters only! This annual celebration brings the community together to raise vital funds for healthcare programs, education, and research for Southern California’s kids.
“We are thrilled to commemorate 30 years of walking for kids with a unique celebration in Disney California Adventure® park,” said Disneyland Resort President Ken Potrock. “Our longstanding relationship with CHOC is based on our shared vision for helping children and their families in our community, and we are proud to continue this legacy through our support of CHOC Adventure in the Park.”

In years past, everyone can donate or raise a minimum of $250 to get their ticket to the celebration (a seven-hour experience). Other increments above $250 activate certain prize levels. The $50 registration fee goes toward the $250 total, so after someone registers, they only need to raise an additional $200 to get their ticket. We invite all participants to fundraise toward their participation. Fundraising tips and ideas can be found here: www.chocwalk.org/Static/Fundraising-Tips.
