Twins from Green Bay and baby from Kenosha take first, second place

News release

GREEN BAY — Green Bay twins Hudson and Brayden are the top vote getters in Aurora Health Care’s 2023 NICU Halloween Costume Bash contest with their creative Super Mario Bros. costume.

Coming in second place was Kimberlyn, of Kenosha, who chomped her way to second place with her Very Hungry Caterpillar costume.

Hudson and Brayden, who were born at Aurora Baycare Medical Center, and Kimberlyn, who was born at Aurora Medical Center – Kenosha, will all receive a not-so-spooky prize for winning.

Despite being hospitalized this October, Aurora Health Care’s tiniest patients joined in the Halloween festivities.

Families in the Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU) worked with their child’s care team to safely dress up their babies in Halloween costumes as simple or as elaborate as they wanted.

They then submitted photos, which were shared on Aurora Health Care’s Facebook page. The photos with the most reactions by noon today were deemed the contest winners, although they’re all winners in our eyes! Check them out below and attached. 

“The most important part of this annual event is giving our NICU families the sense of joy and normalcy that they deserve,” said Dr. Kevin Dahlman, Medical Director, Aurora Children’s Health. “We know that supporting our patients through their NICU journeys involves more than medication and procedures. This event is one way we can celebrate their resilience and bring smiles to the entire family.”
