We have such a dreadful update. After many attempts, we have to humbly bow out. There will be no ZWD October walk for 2015.
We're so sad, and can imagine that you zombies are sad, as well. We're certain you'll find many horrifically fun events to attend this October, but we agree- it just won't be the same without this annual event.
Long story short, we had plans and a location, but it all went sour. We were just about to attempt securing our second option, when someone with wonderful ideas and amazing promise contacted us. We were thrilled! We abandoned our original 'plan B,' and forged ahead with great enthusiasm!
In the end their offer fell through, and by then, it was simply too late for us to pull together what should be an awesome event.
Sure, we continue the scramble to pull something together, but without the amazing amount of prep that goes into this (an appropriate beginning and ending location, route & distance mapping, sponsors, and ohhh soooo many prizes- all of which need to be gathered) we knew it would have a thrown-together feel. It wouldn't serve you, our sponsors OR Gleaners the way it should.
We apologize... to you and Gleaners. We're sorry. And we're sad. And we've become determined to do a smaller 'just for fun' event sometime soon (but not in October). We don't know if it will be when it's cold (soon!) or when it warms up a bit (Spring!), but if you're into it, and would maybe even like to help with it, we would love to hear from you.
Thank you for your understanding.
In the spirit of things, perhaps you'll consider donating a bit to Gleaners. We'll miss all of you, but perhaps we'll see you at any or all of the amazing things that make Halloween AWESOME in Detroit!
