Halloween Roundup: Top #GiveForward Moments of the Week
For Halloween, people are putting the finishing touches on their costumes and eating too many fun-sized Snickers. On GiveForward, communities are hosting Halloween-themed events and dressing up to bring joy to the people they love. Here are some of our favorite moments from the week.
1. Jack’s community organizes Superhero 5K
Three-year-old Jack Rollins is fighting stage four neuroblastoma. Jack loves to dress up as superheroes — you can see him as Spiderman, The Hulk, Batman and Superman on his GiveForward Page. This month, Jack’s community held their second annual Team Jack Superhero 5k to raise money for his treatments.
2. #TeamNatasha hosts Halloween Zumba Party
Over a year ago, Natasha Robinson was diagnosed with a rare cancer. Since then, she’s participated in a 40-day study at the National Institute of Health, undergone surgery and received chemo. To help her navigate this journey, #TeamNatasha has hosted multiple events in her honor. Next is their Halloween Zumba Party this Saturday!
3. Jen brings joy to others undergoing chemo
Jen Drew-Young has been battling a series of diseases, including lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and lung disease. To fight the damage these diseases cause, Jen receives regular chemo treatments. Rather than feeling sorry for herself, Jen brings joy to other patients, doctors and nurses by dressing up as a superhero for every appointment.
4. Wendy offers free face painting on Halloween
Wendy Zeigler is an artist and musician who spends her time creating, teaching children, and donating to causes she cares about. Since she was diagnosed with breast cancer, Wendy’s community has raised $6,796 for her expenses. To give forward, Wendy is offering free face painting to her community this Halloween.
