CHOC Walk 2009
Over 12,000 walkers gathered in the wee hours of the morning on Sunday, October 18th to participate in the 19th Annual CHOC Walk at Disneyland to support the Children's Hospital of Orange County.
Walkers wore colorful T-Shirts, carried balloons, and displayed homemade signs in honor of children that are fighting illnesses and in memory of children that had lost their battle. There were also signs saying "Thank You" for those that have been cured. Despite our current recession, they managed to raise $1.5 million.
The route was a 5k walk piped with energetic music through Disneyland, Disney's California Adventure and ending in Downtown Disney. Walkers were encouraged along the way by Disney Characters, Disney employees, musicians, cheerleaders and volunteers.
I want to personally thank everyone that supported me for the walk. Your donation will not go wasted!
