As always, I'll be there with all my photo gear and documenting as much of the event as I possibly can. Come on down, donate food to Harvesters, get all Zombified, get your picture taken, and go terrorize the locals!
Friday, June 3 · 7:30pm - 10:30pm
The Pitch Parking Lot (Click for Map)
The Kansas City Zombie Walk for Hunger is a grass roots charity founded in May of 2008. June 3rd will be the 6th semi-annual walk here in Kansas City where the zombie horde is growing bigger and stronger each year.
Please join us on June 3rd, 2011 in the Cross Roads Art District in THE PITCH PARKING LOT. We will start walking at 8 PM. All food must be checked in by 7:45 PM. Suggested time of arrival is 7 PM. Since it is the largest First Friday of the season, it is best to arrive at the allotted destination at 7. It can get a little hairy parking so make sure you leave yourself enough time to park and walk to the meet up site.
The charity of choice this spring is......
Bishop Sullivan Center
6435 Truman Road
Kansas City, MO 64126
This will be our third time dedicating our donations to the Bishop Sullivan Center!
To participate in the walk please bring 5 of the below items:
Meals (Spaghettio’s, etc)
Mac and Cheese
Chicken Helper, etc
Diapers Size 4 and up
If you want to come down and watch, take pictures, or just cheer us on please do, the KC Zombie Walk is all about feeding and assisting the hungry, if you are going to come be a spectator, please donate as well!
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU CHECK IN AT ONE OF THE TABLES TO TURN YOUR DONATION IN. ONCE YOUR DONATION HAS BEEN RECEIVED YOU WILL GET MARKED IN SOME FASHION SO THAT WE KNOW THAT YOU HAVE EITHER TURNED IN YOUR DONATION OR PAID THE $10.00 FEE TO OPT OUT OF BRINGING FOOD.
If you have combined donations please make sure every person checks in so you can get your marking. One person is not allowed to turn in for 5 people while the other 4 are out conversing with other zombies.
While this is an adult only walk, children are allowed at your own risk. We are NOT liable for anything that may offend both children and adults. If you find someone’s costume offensive please keep your thoughts to yourself. This walk is not about you it’s about feeding the hungry.
We will once again have a blood station at this walk, however, it will be handled a little differently. In order to participate and receive blood at the blood station we will be asking for a minimum donation of $1.00. 1 gallon of blood costs $40.00, we are running low on blood and all donations will count towards the operation of the walk which includes blood.
A general route will be posted when you arrive. We will be walking for at least an hour though the route is not set in stone. If the leader decides to veer off, the remainder will follow.
As always, I will be posting the rules of the walk. as the walk continues to grow, we continue to have more problems with participants NOT following the rules. There will be spotters throughout the walk looking for people breaking the rules. If you are caught breaking these rules you will be asked to leave the walk immediately.
If you have any other questions please feel free to e-mail me or post them!
