The CHOC Walk in the Park at the Disneyland Resort is an annual fundraiser event that supports the Children's Hospital of Orange County (CHOC). The event is held at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California. Participants get the unique opportunity to walk a 5k (3.1 miles) through Disneyland Park, Disney California Adventure Park, and the Downtown Disney District, all before the parks open to the general public for the day. Prior to the event, participants are encouraged to raise funds for CHOC. There are often incentives for individuals and teams based on the amount of money they raise.


The primary aim of the CHOC Walk is to raise funds for the Children's Hospital of Orange County. CHOC provides high-quality pediatric care to children, regardless of their family's ability to pay. The CHOC Walk has been a tradition since the early 1990s. It started as a relatively small event and has since grown into one of the largest single pediatric walk events in the nation. Thousands of people, including families, corporate teams, and individuals participate each year. Many walkers participate in honor or memory of a child who has been treated at CHOC. Local businesses, schools, and other community groups often get involved by forming teams, sponsoring the event, or volunteering.

Along the route, participants are treated to Disney characters, live entertainment, and other special surprises. It's a festive atmosphere that celebrates the spirit of giving and the magic of Disney. After the walk, participants can enjoy entertainment, activities, and other offerings in the Downtown Disney District.


Over the years, the CHOC Walk has raised millions of dollars for the Children's Hospital of Orange County. This has had a tremendous impact on the hospital's ability to serve the children of the community and invest in critical programs, services, and research.

If you're considering participating in or supporting the CHOC Walk, it's a fantastic opportunity to make a difference in the lives of many children while also experiencing the magic of Disneyland in a unique way.
