CHOC Walk in the Park 2019
One more friendly reminder that our volunteering with CHOC is not sponsored in any way. We VOLUNTEER all of our time, energy and resources to help The Children’s Hospital of Orange County and are not compensated or obligated to post anything - we choose to.
This is something that we look forward to do now, as a couple, as a family, and as a team. CHOC holds such a dear place in our hearts and fortunately, we’ve made some incredible friends while taking part in something that helps the well-being of children. Chloe (below) is an example of just one of the wonderful people we’ve been able to connect with and also become friends with through CHOC Walk!
This year had a record attendance at 14,000 people who walked together with one mission: to raise money for CHOC (the Children’s Hospital of Orange County) to further benefit the children & families affected every single day from health issues. As of the writing of this blog, over $2.5 MILLION has been raised this year for CHOC. Actually, you have until September 12 to donate still!
Team Much Love had such a blast walking this year alongside close family & friends. Every year, it’s a humbling experience walking alongside like-minded human beings who just want to help, but also alongside the families & children who have been, or are currently at CHOC receiving treatment. The smiles you see, the support & the love you witness — there’s no words to describe how important this walk is to so many countless individuals.
Walking through Disneyland & California Adventure is just the added bonus to the whole event. Seeing all the characters out greeting walkers as they pass by, seeing some of the rides active, and literally being at the happiest place on earth just makes CHOC Walk that much more special for everyone involved.
As we were crossing the finish line, with a big smile on our faces, I said, “I can’t wait to do this again next year”. CHOC Walk is now something that we consider tradition and it’s something we’ll continue to be a part of. We will continue to raise awareness & put forth any & all efforts to support CHOC!
If you haven’t already, please take some time to read through some of our older posts about CHOC and the CHOC Walk in the Park. This was our 3rd year walking and the Walk has become a very special and important event for us. We welcome everyone to join us or get involved, no matter where you are on the globe.
All donations made towards our team and the walk go directly to the hospital, and they accept donations year-round. Don’t feel like there are any limitations to what you can contribute, should you like to!
If you’d like to make a donation to the Children’s Hospital, you can easily do so here.
Thank you to everyone who supported us and the hospital in this year’s fundraiser! Every little bit is so appreciated, and we hope to see even more of you walking with us next year!
