2014 CHOC Walk in the Park
Growing up in Orange County CHOC has always been a steady presence in my life. As I child I remember passing by the original, small hospital and learning from my mom about the good work they did for sick children. In my adolescence I had a relative stay at CHOC. Luckily, it was only for one night and she made a speedy recovery but I was struck by how well she was cared for. When I was a teenager I was a candy striper at St. Joseph Hospital next door and would make regular errand runs across the street. As an adult, I’ve watched the hospital grow to the world renowned organization it is today and try to contribute whenever I can. So this Sunday, October 12, bright and early, you can find me participating in the CHOC Walk.
This is my third CHOC Walk and I’m certainly looking forward to it. The walk takes place at the Disneyland Resort and is a 5K. But there’s no competition here. It’s all in the spirit of a good cause and it really is a fun and heartwarming event. with all proceeds benefiting CHOC. This year I’ll be joined by other local bloggers in the team Blogging While Walking. We aim to earn all we can for this wonderful organization.
If you’d like to contribute you can sponsor me here. Or if you’d like to walk, you can still sign up!
This Sunday we’ll all be live tweeting, instagramming, facebooking and such. Just look for hashtag #CHOCWalk and follow along. See you at the walk!
