CHOC Walk in the Park Brings Hope and Encouragement to Families

CHOC Walk in the Park Brings Hope and Encouragement to Families

The Happiest Place on Earth opened before dawn on Sunday morning of last week for the 2013 CHOC Walk in the Park. More than 15,000 people came out to support the children and families being cared for by the doctors and nurses at CHOC Children’s Hospital. CHOC Children’s Hospital has made a big impact on the health of my children, so we were more than happy to raise over $700 from our fundraising efforts for the CHOC Walk in the Park.

The doctors and nurses at CHOC Children’s Hospital have become a part of our family of the years that my children have been under their care. My eyes filled with tears as one of Tyler’s doctors came up him the morning of the walk and gave him a big hug. It was moments like this that just proved that the doctors are not just there to heal the children, but to bring them joy and hope.

It was a special day as our family walked throughout Disneyland Park with all of their favorite Disney characters. The kids got to see the park like they never have before as we followed the trail throughout both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. Everywhere we turned there was another Disney character or employee cheering them on, and giving them “High Fives.”
