Local Restaurants to Raise Money for Zombie Invasion 5K
A zombie invasion is coming to Charles County later this month and the first symptom of the infection – generosity – is already starting to appear at local businesses.
Texas Roadhouse, The Meadows Original Frozen Custard and Buffalo Wild Wings are hosting special events to raise money for the Charles County Sheriff’s Office’s Zombie Invasion 5K to support Special Olympics Maryland. The following fundraisers are scheduled:
- Texas Roadhouse, located at 103 Drury Drive in La Plata, on Nov. 14.
- The Meadows Original Frozen Custard, located at 1276 Smallwood Drive in Waldorf, from 1:30-8 p.m. on Nov. 16.
- Buffalo Wild Wings, located at 11215 Mall Circle in Waldorf, on Nov. 9. This is the last of the restaurant’s three Zombie Invasion 5K fundraisers.
To participate, download the appropriate flier and present it at your visit on the designated day.
The Zombie Invasion 5K, which is also being sponsored by the Charles County Fraternal Order of Police and the Charles County Correctional Officers Association, will be held on Sun., Nov. 17, at Laurel Springs Regional Park in La Plata. During the fun, family-friendly event, participants will transition into zombies and then complete a 5K either by racing competitively using chipped timing or by walking at a more leisurely, zombie-like pace. Competitive and non-competitive zombies alike will receive prizes and gifts. Prizes will also be awarded to the top zombie finishers in several categories. A prize will also be awarded to the winner of the Zombie Beauty Contest.
The cost to register is $25 for adult zombies and $20 for child zombies between 11 and 17 years undead. There is no registration fee for zombies 10 years undead or younger. Zombies may register online at zombieinvasion5K.com.kintera.org and those who register before Nov. 8 will receive a T-shirt. T-shirts are available in adult and youth sizes.
