Approximately 16,000 walkers helped raise nearly $2 million for CHOC Children’s at the 23rd annual CHOC Walk in the Park at the Disneyland Resort. A total of $300,000 was donated by the Disneyland Resort, matching funds raised by the Disney VoluntEARS team and pre-event fundraising efforts, including a cast auction. The auction featured items such as an original Autopia vehicle that raised $10,600.
CHOC Walk in the Park has been held at the Disneyland Resort for the past 12 years. The Resort’s relationship with CHOC Children’s began more than 50 years ago when Walt Disney helped champion the need for a children’s hospital in Orange County.
