Thought for Thursday

As Thanksgiving nears, the community of Morgantown often holds food and clothing drives. As of 2008, a unique kind of donation event has started tradition: Zombie Walk.

This year and previous years, the walk was held October 16th at 8:00 by the Chi Omega sorority house. Participants are encouraged to not only dress as zombies, but to bring a canned good. The proceeds of the evening are given to the Morgantown Food Bank.
After registration and donation, the zombies make their way down High Street, groaning at pedestrians who line the street watching with shocked anticipation. 

Here in the Chi Omega parking lot, throngs of zombies wait eagerly for the walk to commence. 

Zombies must stay in character the entire time, a difficult feat due to the amount of fun they were having.

Zombies were more than eager to pose for anyone with a camera!
At the end of the walk, participants met at Billiards & Cue to watch a horror flick and listen to local band Midnight Syndicat.
Overall, it was a night to remember with an estimated number of 412 zombies. Keep up the great work, fellow zombies and I'll see you  next year!
