Houston Zombie Walk

WHAT: The Houston Zombie Walk is exactly what it sounds like. We are a facilitator group hosting an annual walk for charity in the fall to break open the Halloween season! The walk itself is structured the same as any walk/run for charity, as you may have participated in “The Komen Race for the Cure”, or the Texas Med Center 5k, or any number of others in any major city. Ours happens to be themed, and it’s one heck of a party! Zombie walks are hosted in many major cities around the globe, attracting thousands of participants each year, all going to different charity groups. Our goal is to give back to our supporters as much as we give to our charities. At each annual event we give you a sweet concert! We are the ONLY Zombie Walk in Texas that runs year-round!

Huge amounts of time and energy were expended to bring zombies and other zombie walks out of the suburbs and into where they belong, downtown Houston!
