MedStar seeking special kids for trick or treat event

Do you 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 sixth year in a row, MedStar is offering to take one or two children, with their family, who might not normally be able to do so due to medical restrictions, out for Halloween to a Fort Worth neighborhood.

The child will be picked up at home, brought to a specially selected neighborhood in a MedStar ambulance and escorted through the neighborhood on z stretcher and returned after their bag is full.

A MedStar paramedic, EMT, and Safety Clown will accompany the child from door to door and assist with collecting all the goodies.

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

Nomination deadline is Oct. 19th

Participation Guidelines:

  • Date of event will be October 31, between 6-9 p.m.
  • Child and parents should live, or be temporarily residing in the MedStar service area.
  • Children in a hospital, or other medical facility are eligible. We will coordinate with the facility.
  • Child should be between 5 and 15 years old.
  • Child and parents should be willing to share their experience with media partners and sign a photo release.

MedStar shall make the final determination of clinical appropriateness for participation.
