PRLog - Aug. 22, 2011 - DES MOINES, Iowa -- DES MOINES – (August 22, 2011) – The 3rd Annual Des Moines Zombie Walk is set for Saturday, October 1st at 2 PM. Zombies will assemble at the Brenton Skating Plaza at 520 Robert D. Ray Dr. The event raises money and needed items for Central Iowa Shelter & Services.

The event is family friendly and free to participate. The zombie walk gives fans of the macabre a place to support their community.

"I'm passionate about two things, zombies and helping my community.  The Des Moines Zombie Walk brings out those creative and kind citizens and gives them a time to shine, or ooze depending on how you look at it,” said Gary Wickering, walk organizer. “It's sure to be a day everyone looks forward to each year as we continue to infect more and more kind-hearted, tasty brained Iowans."

The horde will start at Brenton Skating Plaza, head through Court Avenue District, stumble to the state capitol for a group photo and then end at Zombie Burger + Drink Lab for the official after party where 10 percent of sales will be donated to Central Iowa Shelter & Services.

In 2009, the first year saw just over one hundred people. In 2010, there were just over three hundred and twenty five people. The walk has set a goal of 750-1,000 zombies walking for charity and raising free will donations up to $10,000 for Central Iowa Shelter & Services.
