Nor'easter Neighbors celebrate "Brocktober" on Halloween

Nor'easter Neighbors celebrate "Brocktober" on Halloween

October 31, 2017

The University of New England Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) and the Athletics Department have done their part as Nor'easter Neighbors this Halloween, spreading the holiday spirit to one special individual. 

Brock Chadwick, a 7-year-old from Biddeford who started his battle with a rare brain cancer back in February, just wanted to celebrate his favorite holiday, Halloween. To ensure that Brock got to celebrate it, "Brocktober" was created. The UNE teams came together to make cards, collect UNE gear and put together Halloween bags for Brock.

UNE athletes join people around the country in the effort to give Brock a special Halloween, as hundreds of cards have been sent to Brock and his family every day in honor of "Brocktober."
