Last weekend, the Disneyland Resort presented the largest and most unique pediatric 5K walk in the nation, CHOC Walk in the Park, benefitting Children’s Hospital of Orange County. The walk has raised more than $29 million since it began 26 years ago, with the Disneyland Resort hosting the walk for the last 15 years.
Approximately 14,000 walkers strolled through Disneyland and Disney California Adventure parks, raising a record $3.1 million this year. The top fundraiser was the Disneyland Resort Annual Passholders walk team, which raised about $96,000.
Many Disneyland Resort cast members also participate including Ian McQuire, an attractions host in Tomorrowland, who has walked with his family since 2009. In this video, Ian shares how CHOC Children’s positively impacted his family.
