Any enterprising and skillful creature of the night can take a chance to win for their very own, many fear-tastic Nerf Zombie Strike prizes! Face the challenge of the Nightmare Clown! The Toxic Waste Barrel Toss! The Zombie Zapping Gallery!
The 2014 Charity of Choice for the Toronto Zombie Walk is The Canadian Wildlife Federation: Help the Bats
The Canadian Wildlife Federation CWF doesnt currently list zombies as a species at risk. But this years Toronto Zombie Walk is going a little batty to help out a species whose populations may soon be: Canadas bats! October 25th, CWF will be the charity of choice at the 2014 Toronto Zombie Walk as thousands of zombies join the annual march of the macabre through the downtown core.
In conjunction with the CWF Help the Bats initiative, participating zombies and curious spectators will be encouraged to lend their financial support to the respected conservation organization in its efforts to save Canadian bats from white nose syndrome WNS, a disease that is decimating their populations. Some species, like the Little Brown Bat, can decline by 90 to 100 per cent when infected by WNS.
Look for the CWF tent on site at this years TZW to drop off donations, win prizes and learn more about bats!
