Officers, firefighters dance to Thriller for kids with allergies

- Tarpon Springs police and firefighters are busting out into the Thriller dance and all for a good cause. 

The police department posted video of them dancing to the Michael Jackson hit on social media and they've got some moves! The departments are hoping to raise awareness for the Teal Pumpkin Project and children with allergies through their video.

They also hope to raise money for The Cured Foundation to help fight eosinophilic diseases, which include allergies and immune system diseases. 

The Teal Pumpkin Project helps to recognize and raise awareness for children with allergies. Those who put a teal pumpkin out on their porch on Halloween signify that they have allergy-friendly candies or small toys for children with allergies in lieu of candy or food.
