Frequently Asked Questions

How do I create a fundraising page?

A personal fundraising page is created automatically for you when you register to participate, whether you register as an individual, team member, team captain or virtual walker. Visit your Participant Center to customize your fundraising page with a unique name or URL, tell your story, set a fundraising goal, upload a video and photo, send emails and updates to friends and family, and collect donations online.

Can donations be made by check?

Yes. All checks should be made payable to Children's Hospital Los Angeles and mailed to 4650 Sunset Boulevard, MS #29, Attn: Walk and Play L.A., Los Angeles, CA 90027.

My supporter needs a tax-receipt letter. How do I get one?

A tax receipt is automatically generated for supporters who give online through your personal fundraising page. For gifts made by cash or check, donors must provide their complete name (first and last names) and mailing address. We will mail them a letter and tax receipt when their gift has been processed.

Are all participants and teammates encouraged to fundraise?

Yes. Walk and Play L.A. is a community fundraising event and all participants, including team members, are encouraged to fundraise in support of CHLA. Check out some helpful fundraising tips to get started.

What is the distance of the walk?


Is the walk course handicap-accessible?

Yes. The event was designed to accommodate participants with disabilities. Participants will be able to complete the walk in wheelchairs, with strollers and at a pace that is comfortable for them.

Can I bring my pet to the walk?

No. Due to event insurance coverage, we are not permitting walkers to bring their pets to Walk and Play L.A. This is fairly typical for events of this nature, especially when small children are expected to attend.

What happens if it rains?

Walk and Play L.A. will take place rain or shine.

Where should I park on event day?

Parking will be complimentary for all registered participants. Detailed instructions will be emailed to you prior to the event and will be added to the Participant Hub page.

My employer will match my donation to Walk and Play L.A. What do I need to do?

If your company has a matching gift program, please request a matching gift form from your Human Resources or Personnel department. Bring the matching gift form and donation to the walk.
