Halloween is around the corner and Indianapolis Colts quarterback Brett Hundley celebrated the holiday in grand fashion. Hundley held his annual Halloween Spectacular for children that live with epilepsy.

Hundley hosted more than 250 kids and their families in Las Vegas. Through his Hundley Foundation, the free event featured several fun activities. Kids were able to participate in many activities that included pumpkin decorating, a candy scavenger hunt and a trunk or treat. 

Each guest was also treated to food, music and cool costumes. The Halloween Spectacular was held to give families a safe space to relax and have fun.

The National Football League Players Association named Hundley the Week 7 Community MVP. The NFLPA will donate $10,000 to a charity of Hundley’s choice.

“I am honored to be named the NFLPA Community MVP for this week,” Hundley said in accepting the NFLPA honor. “Being in a position where I can give back and help families and kids is what it's all about.”

Hundley joins NFL stars Adam Thielen, Jared Goff and Von Miller as recent 2021 recipients of the weekly Community MVP award.

Throughout his NFL career, Hundley has been heavily involved in community efforts. His foundation is dedicated to helping improve the lives of children and families that are living with epilepsy. In May, Hundley helped raise over $40,000 with his first annual LACE’EM UP for Epilepsy Walk.

Hundley started his foundation in 2019 with the mission to provide through initiatives in health, wellness, education and other charitable causes.
