Pembroke’s 1st Annual Zombie Thrillrun Raises over $18,000
Our first annual “Zombie Thrill Run” in support of Breast Cancer was a HUGE SUCCESS!
Over 350 participants raised over $18,000.00 with auction and coffee money still to be tallied. For the first Zombie Thrillrun all expectations have been exceeded. It was a wonderful, fun filled day for the un-dead.
- The support we had from the community was overwhelming!
- The media we received for the event was fantastic.
- The volunteers and Zombies were outstanding.
Our event has received nothing but positive feedback from the participants, volunteers and spectators.
At first glance it appeared like another episode of Evil Dead with Zombies lined up at the starting gate. Each race started with a spectacular flash mob performed by a local dance studio.
