The CHOC Walk in the Park presented by the Disneyland® Resort brings the community together for one single goal – to raise funds for health care programs, education and research for Southern California’s kids.
For three decades, the CHOC Walk has been a beloved community event supporting families that rely on us to care for their CHOC heroes. To continue building on this legacy while protecting the health and safety of our community, this year’s Walk journey will be reimagined to adapt to our new reality.
We invite you to join us for a CHOC Walk celebration from the safety of your own home! This year's Virtual Walk season is packed with all-new tools, digital challenges and incentives to jump-start your fundraising. All leading up to a virtual celebration on Saturday, March 20 that will bring the magic of the happiest walk on earth straight to your living room.

CHOC Walk History
TIMELINE: 30 Years of Walking for Kids
November 10, 1990, was an important day for Children's Hospital of Orange County (CHOC Children’s). On this milestone date patients and staff moved through tunnels and halls, beginning the process of transitioning from their original building (constructed in 1964 through the efforts of local civic leaders and philanthropists, including Walt Disney). As they moved into a new, six-story building, nearly 1,000 men, women and children walked past the new hospital for the inaugural CHOC/Disneyland® Community Walk.
Now in its 30th year, the CHOC Walk has become one of the largest and most unique pediatric fundraisers in the nation. The only event of its kind, CHOC Walk takes place inside the Disneyland® Resort and now virtually online, raising more than $37.5 million for the kids in our community since its first year.
