CHOC Walk In The Park!

Nick and I are beyond excited to share our CHOC Walk In The Park experience with all of you!

First things first : what is the CHOC Walk?

The CHOC Walk is a fundraising event put on every year by the Children's Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) that's sponsored by Disneyland Resort. The event talked place inside of the Disneyland Resort - walking through both Disneyland Park, Disney California Adventure Park and the Downtown Disney District. The community organizes and creates teams, setting fundraising goals individually to help raise money for the Children's Hospital (CHOC).

The goal of the event is to raise money for the Children's Hospital of Orange County so that they're able to expand what they're able to offer the patients and their families, and obtain all of the necessary equipment/resources for treating the children patients seen there.

A few months back, we started our journey with CHOC when they invited us to join them at Disneyland for their CHOC Walk In The Park Press Event + Mixer! We we're fortunate enough to mingle with some of the heads of this event, including the 2017 CHOC Walk Ambassador and her family. Here we learned a great deal about the importance of events like this one, and it's purpose within the Southern California community.

Without any hesitation, Nick and I decided we wanted to do whatever we could to call attention to this year's CHOC Walk, and also to start our own team!

Not knowing Nick's touring schedule caused a little bit of a delay, but it only 2 short weeks of public announcing our team and inviting anyone and everyone to join us, we we're able to fly past our goal and even made a few new friends on walking day!

We've put together a quick vlog recap including some of our Instagram Stories posts showing a little bit of what the event is like! 

Enjoy a few photos from the CHOC Walk!
