Make Every Step Count
CHOC continues to provide the best available care to children in our community and your support helps ensure that every child in need will receive medical care, regardless of their family's ability to pay.
CHOC Walk in the Park History
Throughout this event's 27-year history, CHOC Walk in the Park―presented by the Disneyland Resort―has raised more than $30 million to help support care, services, education and research for children undergoing medical treatment and their families.
Last year, 560 walkers joined the Disneyland Resort Annual Passholders CHOC Walk Team―and raised more than $102,000! Let's show what Passholders can do this year as we work to meet the fundraising goal of $115,000.
An Exciting Walk – with Character
Participants in the 2017 CHOC Walk in the Park will enjoy a family-friendly 5K walk through Disneyland Park, Disney California Adventure Park and the Downtown Disney District. Along the way, you’ll have unique photo opportunities as some cherished Disney friends cheer you on.
After you cross the finish line, the celebration continues in the Downtown Disney District where you’ll find special offers from event sponsors, shops and restaurants. Just be sure to show your event wristband.
How to Join the Team
Each individual must raise a minimum $85 donation in order to participate in the 2017 CHOC Walk in the Park.
Only active Disneyland Resort Annual Passholders can register for the Disneyland Resort Annual Passholders CHOC Walk Team. Once registered, Passholders may add others to the team who are not Passholders themselves, as long as each added participant meets the donation minimum. The more, the merrier!
If you can't attend the event in person, you can still register as a "Sleeping Bear." As a qualifying participant, you can still receive the Disneyland Resort Annual Passholders CHOC Walk Team fundraising incentives.
Registration for new team members closes at 3:00 PM PST on Saturday, August 26, 2017, or until the Disneyland Resort Annual Passholders CHOC Walk Team reaches capacity for participants.
Once you’ve joined the Disneyland Resort Annual Passholders CHOC Walk Team, you are eligible to earn* the following fundraising incentives available only to Disneyland Resort Annual Passholders CHOC Walk Team members:
- Team members who raise $120 or more will receive a special 2017 Annual Passholder CHOC Walk pin.
- The first 100 team members who raise at least $250 will receive a special Disneyland Resort CHOC Walk blanket.
- The Disneyland Resort Annual Passholders CHOC Walk Team member who raises the most funds, and is a U.S. resident at least 21 years of age, will receive a complimentary one-night stay in a Disneyland Resort hotel suite and a 6-hour VIP Tour of the Disneyland Resort for the Passholder and up to three (3) of his/her guests, including 1-Day Disneyland Resort Park Hopper tickets for any guests who are not Passholders. **
In addition to the Disneyland Resort Annual Passholders CHOC Walk Team’s incentives, CHOC also offers fundraising incentives for eligible participants! Get more details about CHOC’s incentives at chocwalk.org.
During the month of September, CHOC will ship the earned incentive(s) via U.S. Mail or FedEx to the address that the applicable participant provided during online registration.
** The team member must be at least 21 years old, a resident of and physically located in the United States to be eligible to earn the Disneyland Resort Hotel Suite stay. The eligible team member with the highest Collected Funds will earn the one-night stay. The eligible team member will be notified by letter to the address provided during online registration. The specific Disneyland Resort hotel and suite will be coordinated by Disney, pending availability. The suite stay is non-transferable, and is not accepted during peak holiday periods (including by way of example, but not by limitation: November 17-26, 2017, December 15, 2017- January 7, 2018, March 24-April 7, 2018, and July 4, 2018). Stay must be booked and redeemed within one year of notification of earning the incentive or the incentive will be forfeited. The team member who earned the incentive must stay in the suite with his/her guests. Any guest who is a minor must be accompanied by his/her parent/legal guardian who is at least 21 years of age and who will be considered one of the guests of the team member. Stay does not include transportation to the hotel, food, beverages, gratuities, room service, associated income taxes and all other expenses not explicitly stated as included. The VIP Tour must be scheduled on the day of the suite stay or the day after. Annual Passholder blockout dates will apply, but 1-Day Disneyland Resort Park Hopper tickets will be provided to the team member and his/her guests as needed, if the VIP Tour is scheduled on an applicable Passport blockout date. The VIP Tour is limited to the team member and his/her guests. Tour services are available during normal park operating hours only. All tour offerings, services and experiences are subject to availability, change or cancellation without notice. Other restrictions may apply. The team member is solely responsible for all taxes associated with this fundraising incentive and will receive an IRS Form 1099 reflecting the actual value of this incentive; for a non-California resident team member, the failure to provide to Disney an amount necessary to cover the applicable withholding taxes at the normal rates required by law (notwithstanding any tax treaties that may provide for lower rates of tax withholding, including exemption from withholding with the satisfaction of qualification requirements) will result in a forfeiture of the incentive.
