Philadelphia Eagles get into the Halloween spirit at CHOP

- The Philadelphia Eagles players suited up not for a game Monday, but to put smiles on the kids' faces at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. About 100 or so kids packed inside the hospital’s atrium to meet some of their favorite players all dressed up for Halloween.

FOX 29 Photojournalist Bill Rohrer has the story.


Linebackers Joe Walker and Nigel Bradham signed autographs and handed out all sorts of goodies.

10-year-old Liam is unable to join the Halloween festivities back at home, but that is not stopping him from having one of the biggest smiles of the day.

This is the third time Minnesota native and Halloween chef Beau Allen has volunteered at this event. 

"These kids are troopers. They go through a lot to hang out with them and just interact with them coloring with them a little bit and just to make them smile was the highlight of the day," he said.

Zach Shimer was there with his 2-year-old daughter Sutton .

"You see kids here that are clearly struggling, but it is probably going to be the best hour they will have in a long time," he said.  "It is not about the football today it is the community support."

Support these families appreciate having.
