This year the living dead are looking to give back to local youth.

According to Organizer of the Zombie Walk Fundraiser Jennifer Coghill, this year, they have added a few events to their list prior to October’s annual walk.

Coghill says this time they plan to celebrate Canada Day with a Red, White and Blood event to raise funds for the Jumpstart program of Canadian Tire.

She says the idea came from trying to add to their Zombie Walk fundraiser, and seemed like a good addition for the summer.

Coghill says they chose to switch their donations towards Jumpstart considering kids are the focus of their activities.

The event will be completely free, but in order to help raise funds for Jumpstart you can purchase a ticket for the draw taking place on June 29th, Coghill says to do so contact the Kapuskasing Zombie Walk Fiendraiser Facebook Page.
