From the simple beginnings of this event in 2002, The Torch Relay for CMN has raised more than $5 million dollars for Children's Hospitals nationwide.
Within the Orange County market, the Torch Relay dedicates its efforts in raising awareness and funds for CHOC Children's Hospital. Since opening their doors in 1964, CHOC has provided the highest quality medical care to children. Their regional health system includes a state-of-the-art 238 bed main hospital facility in the City of Orange, a hospital-within-a-hospital in Mission Viejo, and several primary and specialty clinics — plus over 100 additional programs and services. With admissions growing by 124% since 1998, CHOC and CHOC at Mission combined rank as the 17th busiest children's hospital in the country.
As part of the annual Toys for Tots drive at Knott’s, $15 gifts will be available for purchase at CHOC FEST. Knott’s will provide free park admission with each toy purchased at the CHOC event and donated to the U.S Marine Corp at Knott’s main gate for Toys for Tots.
