The “Are You Prepared” Zombie 5k Run, Walk, Shuffle is a fundraising 5k that raises funds for the Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest NC. You can choose to be a “zombie” or a “survivor” to run, walk, shuffle or slouch for this fun family event. The event is designed as a fun and informative way to highlight an “all-hazards” approach to emergency preparedness. Save the date! More info to come!

The public is invited to come and visit and run, walk or shuffle as their favorite zombie (costumes encouraged, but not required) to check out emergency services displays, vehicles and informational booths. There will be family 5k run/walk, zombie walk/shuffle/slouch, displays, activities, safety and preparedness information and more.

How do you prepare for a zombie apocalypse? Assemble a home emergency kit with all the supplies you need to survive on your own for a minimum of three days, make an emergency plan and practice it with your family so everyone knows what to do. And those are the same preparations you make to be ready for hurricanes, tornadoes, severe storms, winter weather, floods, fires and any of the other disasters we can face in North Carolina. http://www.readyforsyth.org/ 

So, if you’re ready for zombies, you’re ready for anything! The event will feature a number of state and local emergency preparedness and first response agencies in addition to volunteer organizations that will provide information on how to be prepared for disasters and emergencies. When grocery shopping, think of our neighbors who are hungry and grab a few non-perishables to take to the race for the Second Harvest Food Bank! Save the date! More info to come!
