Zombies occupy Statehouse steps for fundraiser

KSAL StaffSeptember 28, 2014

The undead have taken to Topeka streets to fight hunger and poverty.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that hundreds of people with rotting faces and severed limbs participated in the Saturday night fundraiser.

The participants were accompanied by members of the Capital City Reapers Zombie Response Team, who donned black uniforms and combat gear. The group of undead impersonators ended their march on the Statehouse steps, where they posed as victims of the vigilant zombie fighters.

The annual event attracted zombie hunters as young as age 5. Participants were asked to bring canned goods or make a $5 donation to Let’s Help, a community nonprofit that seeks to break the cycle of poverty.

Zombie walk organizer Louie Creek says the event is a “way to give.”
