All Walkers for the 2011 AIDS Walk Orange County must be registered! You cannot participate in the walk unless you have registered for the event. In order for the Walk to meet its goal for this Silver Anniversary year, a minimum registration fee of $50 is required. You have the option of either paying the minimum registration fee or fundraising to meet the minimum goal. It’s up to you! However, to participate in the 25th Annual AIDS Walk Orange County at the Disneyland Resort, you must have raised or donated at least $50.*
While the standard registration fee is $50, many people want to make their own personal pledge in addition to this fee. Your additional support will raise even more money to help people affected by HIV/AIDS in Orange County.
Wristbands will be required to participate in AIDS Walk Orange County at the Disneyland Resort. Only those walkers having paid or raised the minimum $50 fee will be issued a wristband. Wristbands can be picked up prior to the walk at a Check-In location. Walkers are required to wear their wristband in order to enter the park on walk day. We apologize that lost or stolen wristbands cannot be replaced.
Early Bird Check-In
This year, AIDS Walk Orange County will offer, and we strongly suggest you take advantage of, Early Bird Check-In. At Early Bird Check-In, you can turn in any offline donations you may have collected and pick up your wristband (and t-shirt, if you’ve earned one). Early Bird Check-In will be held at 17972 Sky Park Circle, Ste E, Irvine, CA 92614. Click here for a map.
The schedule is as follows…
Day of Event Registration / Prize Distribution
Day of Event Registration, though limited, will open at the site at 6 AM. Walkers who have registered online and who have already submitted all of their offline funds to the walk, either by mail or at Check-In, and who already have their wristband, need only stop at Registration if they have earned an incentive prize as described later on this page. If you have offline funds to submit, were unable to attend a Check-In, or if you declined the online registration and fund-raising process, you may stop at registration and drop off your donations here. Please note that Day of Event Registration will be very limited. We strongly encourage you to take advantage of the online registration process and Check-In procedures.
The 25th Annual AIDS Walk Orange County is a 5 km (3.2 miles) walk through Disneyland, Disney California Adventure and Downtown Disney.
Recommended Prep and Attire
The Walk will begin promptly at 7:00 am. While the 5 km walk does include the portion of the walk from the Mickey & Friends Parking Structure to Disneyland, the opening ceremony will take place at the Main Street Hub inside the park. We recommend preparing to arrive no later than 6:30 am to give yourself time to get into the park. Late arrivals will join the walk midway through at Disney California Adventure. This is an early morning walk. Keeping that in mind, the following is a good starting list to get prepared for the day of the event.
What to Bring
Along with your excitement and enthusiasm, here are a few recommendations to bring along on the day of the event.
Besides the knowledge that you are helping those in Orange County affected and infected by HIV/AIDS, we want to give you the incentive to raise more funds. Check here for a complete list of incentive prizes.
Other Important Information
* Children under the age of 3 do not need to register to participate in AIDS Walk Orange County at the Disneyland Resort. Walkers, ages three and up, must register and wear a wristband.
