The RETURN of the annual WORLD ZOMBIE DAY
-WALK AGAINST HUNGER-


(scroll down for update)

Join us on Sunday October 9th, 2016 for our 8th World Zombie Day - Zombie Walk Against Hunger. This is a fundraiser and food drive to benefit Gleaners Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan. Gather your monetary donations and donations of non-perishable food items, get yourself zombified and tell your friends to do the same!

Gathering begins at 3pm, walk starts by 4pm. Bring AT LEAST 5 canned goods or $5 (per person) to be entered into the general prize drawing at the end of the walk, but PLEASE take it a step further- pledge forms can be downloaded here for collecting donations from others. Zealous zombies that bring in at least $100 in collected donations will be entered in to an additional drawing for even BIGGER prizes. The zombie who brings in the absolute BIGGEST donation gets the top prize! All ages (and dogs on leash) are welcome. Zombie attire is mandatory!

 

UPDATED DETAILS!

Attention, most zealous of zombies & warped wanderers! Here are some more details (& a few clarifications).

MEETING TIME:
3PM. We are glad that you're excited, and we are, too, but please try not to be there much before 3PM- we've got setting up to do and the walk won't start 'til QUITE a bit past then. Registration opens at 3PM and goes until at least 3:45.

MEETING PLACE:
IN FRONT of the train station/central depot at the corner of Michigan Ave and Vernor. We are not going to be AT the train station, rather in front of it- behind the Roosevelt sign. Check out the photo below. Look at that awesome grass under those lovely trees- the perfect spot! We'll be on public sidewalks for the entire walk.

PARKING:
On street. Please try to park on Michigan Avenue and surrounding streets rather than in the lots of local businesses.

RULES:
Stay out of the street (until you're directed to cross at the designated spot by a zombie crossing guard). Walk like a zombie. Keep bloody hands off of businesses that we pass. Have fun!

RAIN DATE:
NONE. Rain or shine, the walk will go on!

POINT:
(besides fun!) This is a fund raiser and food drive for Gleaners Community Food Bank. Hopefully everyone's been hitting up friends & family, collecting monetary donations for Gleaners. Go beyond the 'bring at least 5 cans or 5 dollars' idea and help make this an AMAZING event for Gleaners and hungry families in Michigan!
