IS ON OCTOBER 4TH
BE THERE RAIN OR SHINE!

Last year, The New Jersey Zombie Walk shattered records, proving to the world that the Jersey Shore lives. We showed what it really means to be strong and we are a community built of many amazing people…or should we say zombies? Are you ready to stumble the streets of Asbury Park in the name of a zombie’s favorite thing….BRAINS?


This year it’s Zombies vs. Brain Cancer! To help us fight the war against brain cancer we are calling on the most powerful army we know, the undead.  The 2014 New Jersey Zombie Walk will kick off “GREY MATTERS,” a campaign that spreads awareness about brain cancer. 


WHO?

This year’s campaign will benefit Camp Jinka, a free summer program for children and teenagers whose lives have been impacted by brain cancer. This amazing retreat encourages a connection with others who are experiencing similar life altering events. All the kids of Camp Jinka are residents of New Jersey and each camper brings with them a different story. Some are fighting a brain tumor themselves, others are trying to help a parent through treatment, some are survivors, but all of them are strong fighters!


WHY?

Sadly, NJZW’s very own Volunteer Coordinator, Mariel, aka Zombie Momma, lost her Mom to brain cancer after a courageous two year fight. In lieu of Zombie Momma’s devastating loss, she discovered Camp Jinka and felt an immediate connection with the kids of the camp. She soon learned they are funded purely on donations. With the help of our undead army we can achieve the impossible. Remember, as zombies, if we can catch it... we kill it!


Our annual raucous will proceed as it does every year with some returning events such as the Undead Festival, a bazaar of the bizarre. Featuring 50+ vendors and artists who are dedicated to all things horror, bringing you spooky goods to take home. Some of Asbury’s most popular restaurants and shops will be offering zombie-friendly menus, dinner specials, and discounts.


In addition to waging the war on cancer, this year’s walk has a few new surprises for our beloved undead community:
