Walk of the Living Dead

While Casper's City Park looked like a scene from "Night of the Living Dead," Saturday morning, the more appropriate term might have been "Walk of the Living Dead."  
  
The Brian Injury of Alliance hosted a "Zombie Walk," a variant of the organization's typical fundraisers. "Every year we do a 'Walk for Thought' to help raise money for the Brain Injury Alliance" said Community Resource Director Jason Waugaman. "Every year it's been just a walk, but this year we decided to change things up and make it a theme." 
 
This year, walkers were encouraged to dawn "zombie attire." Fake blood, open wounds, and a hypnotizing walk are all essentials.

Still some ask, why incorporate a zombie theme? "Zombies are bad for your brain," said Waugaman, donning the attire of a zombie-apocalypse survivor. "We also do the walk because exercising is good for your heart, what's good for the heart is good for the brain as well. But zombies are really bad for the brain; it's what they want to eat."

The Brian Injury Alliance of Wyoming is a non-profit group devoted to spreading awareness regarding brain injury awareness and prevention.

The mile-long walk began and ended at City Park. All the proceeds from the event supported the Brain Injury Alliance of Wyoming.
