TOWSON, Md. — It's not Halloween just yet, but all the cool kids were out tonight.

Renee Wooding and the "Cool Kids Campaign" invited kids out for a Halloween extravaganza.

All the kids there were diagnosed with cancer and Wooding says it's a way to make them and their siblings feel special.

"It's hugely important, because kids with cancer suffer higher rates of depression, anxiety and social isolation," Wooding said. "So to be able to get together with other kids like this in a safe environment and be able to be with kids with a shared experience it means a lot because they really can relate to one another so easily."

All the kids there got to take part in a trunk or treat event. Older kids worked their way through an escape room while the younger ones did a Halloween science project.
