Choc Walk in the Park Coming to Disneyland on July 21st

Disneyland Resort presents the annual and beloved “CHOC Walk in the Park” 5K fundraiser, returning this summer to support Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC). Serving children and families in Orange County and Southern California, CHOC is the beneficiary of this event, now in its 32nd year. This year, the walk will occur in July for the first time.

As the sun rises on Sunday, July 21, 2024, eager fundraisers will embark on their approximately three-mile journey. They’ll weave through Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park, encountering exciting and enchanting surprises along the way, all before the parks open to the public.

“CHOC Walk in the Park is an extraordinary event that unites thousands of people from all over the world to help advance pediatric care, research, and education. Disneyland Resort and its cast members work tirelessly to ensure participants enjoy a memorable and magical experience. I look forward to seeing everyone on July 21, when together we will take steps to keep children happy and healthy,” said CHOC president and CEO Kimberly Chavalas Cripe.


The walk event is a unique and magical fundraiser for pediatric healthcare, uniting the community with one goal: to raise funds for research, education, and CHOC healthcare programs benefiting Southern California children and families. This year’s event is expected to have around 350-400 teams, including participants from the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Australia, and Japan, based on past CHOC Walks. This beloved fundraiser also aligns with CHOC’s 60th anniversary in 2024, highlighting its ongoing commitment to creating happy and healthy futures for children.

“We’re thrilled to bring back ‘CHOC Walk in the Park’ for another magical 5K experience inside the parks,” said Ken Potrock, president of Disneyland Resort and CHOC board member. “We’ve partnered with CHOC for over 30 years to help raise $44 million for children and families in our community, and we’re proud to continue Walt Disney’s legacy of being an active, supportive, and caring neighbor.”

“By moving the event to late July, we hope to help families join us by avoiding conflicts with back-to-school activities or planned August family vacations,” stated Jessica Miley, senior vice president and chief development officer for CHOC. “The date change will also help us avoid any liquid sunshine (like last year’s Hurricane Hilary), which was a ‘first’ for all of us during CHOC Walk.”
