Looking for something to do this Halloween besides play tricks and give out treats? Break out your running shoes and your very best Thiller-esque zombie attire and head over to Silver Lake for Zombiethon 2009.
The first ever Zombiethon will be a community “run for brains” held on Halloween.
And by brains we don’t mean peeled grapes, Jell-O, or a bowl of cold spaghetti. Actual brains.
The event benefits City of Hope, a local charity for brain cancer research. For just $10 you can participate in this event and help save lives.
The fun run/walk goes from 4-6 p.m. on All Hallows Eve on the recreation trail around the Silver Lake Reservoir. Even if you’re not a runner, you can still participate in the event as either a walker or a volunteer.
Afterward you can hit the streets in your finest zombie costume. For an additional $5 donation, you can have truly frightening zombie make-up applied by a professional special effects make-up artist at the event.
Perfect for scaring trick-or-treaters.
