Zombie Walk to benefit local charity – Bowling Green Daily News

The undead will have a chance to help the living once again as the Bowling Green Kiwanis Club presents its fourth annual fundraising Zombie Walk on Saturday in downtown Bowling Green.

The event typically draws about 200 walkers dressed as zombies to the citys streets to raise money for a good cause, according to Lisa Rice, vice president of the Bowling Green Kiwanis Club, the event sponsor.

This year, all walk proceeds will go to support Lifes Better Together, a local nonprofit that provides direct financial assistance and support to families with a child or parent battling an ongoing illness.

The event features makeup artists who can turn a walker into a zombie, games, music, food vendors and more from 1 to 3:30 p.m. The walk starts at 4 p.m. The minimum donation to walk is $15 per zombie and $50 for a group of four zombies.

The events, registration and walk starting point are at the WDNS Radio parking lot at 804 College St. across from the Daily News.

The walk through downtown Bowling Green will feature stations along the way offering cures and photo opportunities. At the Warren County Public Library at 1225 State St., there will be a literary zombie costume contest.

Foggers along the walking route add to the great ambiance, Rice said. Its going to be a lot of fun.

The idea for the first event came when the Walking Dead craze was at its peak, Rice said. Its a good excuse to dress up and have fun. We see it grow every year.

Rice remembers being told when the idea for a zombie walk first came up that college students will love the event, and while they do, Rice said she was surprised to see so many families involved.

Theyll even bring a zombie baby or their pets dressed as zombies, she said.
