I am so excited to be participating in the 2019 CHOC Walk in the Park at the Disneyland Resort on August 11th to raise funds for CHOC Children's Hospital!
The fundraising efforts of the CHOC Walk make an immediate impact on families going through the most challenging time in their lives. At every walk I have attended I have had the opportunity to hear from families who turned to CHOC when they were at their most vulnerable. I cannot tell you the overwhelming feeling you get when a mother thanks you for walking because it supports an organization that helped her save her child when she thought all hope might be lost; or hear a father thank you for your support, because even though he lost his son in a hard fought battle with illness, he felt CHOC made his kid’s time the best it could possibly be. To say the experience is overwhelming is an understatement. During the walk, I get to hear stories of the incredible doctors, nurses, technicians, administrators, and volunteers who all come together to help kids overcome! I am asking that you help me support this amazing cause by donating any amount you can.
Really it was all summed up for me in a banner I saw at my first walk, it said: “They told us Jonny would not make it to 8 years old, he is here today celebrating his 18th birthday. Thank you CHOC!” That is what this is about for me, so if you can, I would appreciate any support you can provide.
