Walking dead for a good cause Oct. 30

Staff Writer

Zombies will roam around KC the day before Halloween.

The KC Visual Arts Club is holding a Zombie Walk beginning at 12:30  p.m. on Oct. 30.

The event will serve as a fundraiser  for the Art Club to raise money for  future  club activities such as trips to art museums.

Students wishing to participate in the walk are asked to find sponsors.

Sponsors will donate a certain amount of money per zombie. Anything from a penny to a dollar per zombie is welcome.

Larry Kitchen, visual arts club adviser, said any type of outfit could qualify as a zombie. Students just need to create a fake wound somewhere on their body.

Last year the walk featured a farmer with a straw hat and a cheerleader with a wound on her cheek.

The zombies will start in front of the Anne Dean Turk Fine Arts Center, walk over the bridge to the Wesley Center, walk into the Devall Student Center to the cafeteria, stop by the science building, and finish in the Whitten Applied Technology Center.

A small party with snacks for the people who participated is planned for after the walk.

Student zombies will be pulled from class as “victims” as part of the event. For volunteer information, contact Coy Lothrop at 903-983-7596.
