FORT WORTH, TX -- For some of us, Halloween can be a pretty sweet night. Scary costumes, candy and haunted houses.

But for Reilly McMurray and Jackson Wallace, the chance to get out and trick or treat is what made this night special.

The pair was selected to participate in MedStar’s annual trick-or-treat event in Fort Worth.
