2014 Second Annual Zombie Thrill Run Schedule
In Support of Breast Cancer Research
Last year the Pembroke Fitness Centre and BEST WESTERN Pembroke Inn & Conference Centre hosted the first annual Zombie Thrill Run. With the help of staff, community members and participants the event raised $21,500 for breast cancer research. It was a lot of fun as you can see by last year’s photo gallery and video.
We hope to exceed the results of last year’s Thrill Run with local coverage from news media, Radio advertising and plenty of Zombies talking to new Zombies.
