MedStar Seeking Special Kids for Trick or Treat Event

Know a child who would like to go out on Halloween for Trick or Treat, but needs medical support to be able to do so?

For the 9th year, MedStar is offering to take one or two children out for Halloween in a very special Fort Worth neighborhood. This program is designed for kids who might not normally be able to go trick or treating due to medical restrictions.

The child will be picked up at home, brought to a specially selected neighborhood in a fully decorated MedStar ambulance. The child and their family will be escorted through a specially selected neighborhood on one of our stretchers, with full medical support, until their goody bag is full!

To nominate a child for this event, contact Matt Zavadsky at MZavadsky@medstar911.org or by phone at 817-991-4487.

Nomination deadline is Monday, October 18th
