CHOC Walk Tool Kit Dear Walker: www.chocwalk.org 25 Years of Walking For Kids Thank you for helping to make miracles and magic for the children in our community by choosing to create a CHOC Walk Team in the 25th Annual CHOC Walk in the Park! We are grateful to have friends like you that choose to volunteer and recruit Walkers to participate in our most important event. Why Every Step Counts On October 11, 2015 thousands of CHOC Children's (CHOC) supporters will walk through the Disneyland® Resort for the 25th Annual CHOC Walk in the Park. Last year, over 16,500 participants raised $2.2 million helping to support the care, services, education and research that CHOC provides children. Now, every step means more. As CHOC expands the services provided throughout the community, your support will help more children - in addition to making sure that every child who is in need will receive care regardless of their family's ability to pay. A One of a Kind Walk Experience Upon arriving at the Disneyland® Resort, you’ll realize this is more than a visit to Disneyland®. It's a celebration of the continuous support from our community. It's a time for families to thank the doctors and nurses that cared for their children and share their stories with other families. As you walk through the Disneyland® Park, Disney’s California Adventure™ Park and Downtown Disney® District, you'll be joined by your favorite Disney friends - cheering you on and providing unique photo opportunities. You will have the exclusive opportunity to experience Disneyland® as you never have before! We are excited to return to Main Street U.S.A. to kick off this year’s CHOC Walk. At the end of the 5k Walk, the celebration continues in the Downtown Disney® District where event sponsors, hospital support groups, shops and restaurants have special offers for all Walk participants. What’s New? We are launching an updated Walk Website that will be easier to navigate through. You will still have the convenience of using the same log in information from last year. This same login information will allow CHOC supporters to register for other CHOC events. Walker t-shirts and wristbands will be mailed again this year to your home. Shipping and handling charges apply and required fundraising amount needs to be confirmed in your Participant Account by September 26, 2015.
