Metro Wire Staff

Registration for the second annual Zombie 5-K Fun Run/Walk closes soon.

The Saturday, Sept. 21 fundraising event benefits the Never Forgotten Honor Flight, which sends veterans from WWII, and the Korean and Vietnam War eras, at no charge to them, to the nation’s capital to see the memorials built in their honor.

The zombie run is one of several Halloween-themed events held over multiple weekends at River’s Edge Campground.

The event kicks off at 10 a.m. and participants should dress like their favorite zombie. Registrants will receive a t-shirt, and medals will be given to the top three finishers in male, female, and youth categories.

Registration closes at 11 a.m. on Sept. 15, and costs $20 for adults, $15 for children 12 and under, and $10 for active-duty military and veterans.

Rivers Edge Campground is located about 10 minutes north of the city’s downtown, at 3266 Campsite Dr., Stevens Point.
