Participants, volunteers and sponsors really stepped up with frightening Zombie costumes, unimaginable time dedication and genuine commitment to the cause. [Read more…]

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.

Better late than never! One of our fitness instructors shot some really nice photos of the first annual Zombie Thrill Run. These pictures were brought to our attention just now.

When all was said and done, the event raised over $18,000 for breast cancer. It was a HUGE success with plenty of participation from local businesses and residents.
