The Running Dead Fun Run
Submitted By Rick LaForce
Union City Leisure Services coordinated a 5K/ 10K Fun Run on Sunday, November 3, 2013. The Fun Run was named ÒThe Running DeadÓ because it had a Zombie theme for the Halloween season.
Participants had the choice to enter the Zombie Challenge where each runner wore flags at the side of their hips, or the regular 5K/10K. Zombies along the fun run route were placed there to grab the flags from the runners. Union City high school students from the James Logan Interact Club, Leo Club, and the Union City Youth Commission volunteered as the Zombies. Participants that came back with both flags at the side of their hips received a Diabetes Awareness Bracelet.
Union City Leisure Services teamed up with American Diabetes Association. Monies collected from the Zombie Challenge will be donated to the American Diabetes Association. 154 runners participated in ÒThe Running DeadÓ fun run. Over 50% did the Zombie Challenge. Union City Leisure Services will be donating over $350 to the American Diabetes Association.
