Cops, Fire Department Do 'Thriller' Dance to Raise Awareness for Candy Allergies

Tarpon Springs police and firefighters are busting out the Thriller dance for a good cause. Detective Scarpati's 1-year-old son is a severe Eosinophilic patient.

The police department posted the video of them dancing to the Michael Jackson hit song on their YouTube channel. They want to help find research to find a cure and they need your help.

The department answered a challenge from Tarpon Springs Police Department to make the video to raise awareness of food allergies, Eosinophilic Gastrointestinal Disease, and the Teal Pumpkin Project. Placing teal pumpkins outside of your door can let families know that you are giving away non-candy alternatives for trick-or-treating.

The Tarpon Springs agencies have now issued a challenge to other agencies to take the Thriller challenge to help spread awareness.

The Teal Pumpkin Project promotes that people hand out small trinket toys instead of candy, Scarpati said, so children with the disease can better enjoy the holiday.
