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 3rd year in a row, MedStar is offering to take one or two children - with their family - out for Halloween to a Fort Worth neighborhood that might not normally be able to do so due to medical restrictions.

The child will be picked up at home, brought to a specially selected neighborhood in a MedStar ambulance and escorted through the neighborhood on one of our stretchers and returned after their bag is full!


A MedStar paramedic and EMT 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 or by phone at 817-991-4487. 


Nomination deadline is Tuesday, October 20th
