Young patients assembled on the fifth floor watched in awe and waved their glow sticks to signal the superheroes who were rappelling on ropes from the rooftop of ProMedica Hospital on Halloween. Beneath the costumes were real-life heroes from the SWAT team of the Toledo police force who dreamed up the adventure to entertain the sick children.
The children, gathered around a TV, were brought into the fantasy by a hospital-made video showing a news anchor announcing that the world’s greatest superheroes were on their way to defeat the evil “Professor Trickster”, who stole all of Toledo’s Halloween treats to power his winter weather machine.
The heroes then descended down the building on ropes where the Professor Trickster was waiting for battle. In the end, good triumphed over evil and Halloween was saved for all to enjoy.
Afterward, the superheroes who came inside to chat with the children and parents, and posing for photos, called it one of the best days they’ve ever had.
