About Us

Who are we? We are a group of zombie enthusiasts who are pro-living.  We are a group of diverse individuals who come together once a year to raise money and awareness for various charities.

What charities do you help? We have helped Table to Table, I.C.A.R.E., Johnson County Humane Society, Witty Kitties, Motocrycle Safety, the National Necrotizing Faciitis Foundation are among some of them.

Why zombies? Why not?  Zombies are the most diverse group out there.  While they may be mindless, they are not voiceless. Also, diversity truly is their strength… and we want to use their numbers and voice to spread the word about charities in need.

Where is this event located? This event is held every September/October in Iowa City, Iowa.   We start at the Happy Hollow Park and end up in down town Iowa City.

Do you have events or help out anywhere else? Primarily we hold are marches in Iowa City, Iowa.  However, I help out where ever I can to raise money for worthy charities.

Why did you chose Zombie March vs. a zombie walk or lurch or crawl?  

Quite simply because it implies a purpose.  Although the idead of dressing up for no-reason and walking around like a zombie is very appealing, all of our events we plan or are part of have a purpose.  The main purpose is raising awareness of the different charities in the community.  Many of them we don’t really know much about until we need them.  And typically when we need them, we needed to know about them yesterday. If we raise monetary or non-monetary donations, that is a bonus.
