I’d like to announce that the 2014 Regina Zombie Walk has landed a sponsor: YOU!
Unfortunately, this year we were unable to work things out with a title sponsor. On the verge of having to cancel the event, we threw out one last hope: an Indiegogo campaign.
With the goal of raising $750 in just over a week, we were unsure of whether or not it would work out. But, I’m happy to report that you Regina Zombie Walk fans came through, and we were able to reach the goal with time to spare! Well done Regina!
We even got a great boost of media coverage from Craig Lederhouse of CBC Radio’s The Afternoon Edition. Thanks for helping to share our story Craig!
Why did we need to raise money? Insurance. Both the City of Regina and the Cornwall Centre require liability insurance in order to use their spaced. We don’t blame them – even though our group has always been very well behaved, unleashing a couple hundred undead on the city is always a risk For what it’s worth, both the City of Regina and the Cornwall Centre are incredibly supportive of the event and bend over backwards to help us out. They’re great to work with, but we still need to protect everyone involved.

Please join us on Sunday, September 28th, 2014 at City Square Plaza in Victoria Park. Dress like a zombie, bring a donation for the Regina Food Bank (and a great attitude) and we’ll all have a lot of fun while supporting a great cause.
