Sadly the annual Zombie Walk for Kingston, ON was cancelled this year due to lack of funding.
Alas, when a door closes behind you, there is a whole new world in front of you. Local Ben Kent has jumped at the opportunity in this brave new world to begin a new Zombie Walk for the residents of the city of Kingston.
His reasons are simple and heart felt, the same as many participants in the annual Zombie Walk. It is tradition, it is something families can do together and, a heck of a lot of fun.
Here is the information thus far concerning the initiative to start a brand spanking new Zombie Walk for our community to participate in. It always amazes me when someone sees something that can be changed, and acts on it.
Please read and learn about the inspiration for, reasons behind and, why Kingston loves it’s annual Zombie Walk.

Well, undead, at least.

Last year, in the lead-up to Hallowe’en, it wasn’t Trick or Treating that got my girls excited; it wasn’t their Spider-Witch-Goddess costume, or their Dragon Princess – it was their “Zombie Family” costume, and they were eager to participate in the Zombie Walk. And the year before, the week after Hallowe’en, my (at the time) 4-year-old was immediately asking, “Can we go on a Zombie Walk again?”. And last year, my 7-year-old made it her goal to win “Best Child Costume”, and proudly boasting about going to her friends at school.” Ben Kent

“In short: My kids want The Zombie Walk. That means I have to try. Plus, I’ve already heard from a score of adults, who are glad to see something at least trying to move forward and keep up the tradition.

While the previous admins commented on there being some sort of financial situation that prevented them from moving forward, I’ve taken it upon myself to find out what those difficulties are, and if it’s possible to overcome them. Unless it’s simply impossible, the Zombie Walk 2015 is going ahead!”Ben Kent

 “A friend of mine and member of HORROR GEEKS, Caroline Teske, is taking part in the Walk to End Women’s Cancer this year. As she states on her personal donation page ‘Cancer has touched my family and friends so much over the last couple of years. I lost my sister Katrina in June, 2014, my good friend Heather in January, 2015, and my mother is currently battling it now. This summer, our team hopes to participate in the walk again for the second time. My goal is to raise $2,000 this year to help keep Katrina’s and Heather’s memories alive and to honor those who are still fighting this illness. The money raised goes to support the wonderful efforts of the Montreal Jewish General Hospital and the Segal Research Centre to end women’s cancers.’
As H’s best friend and, having lost my own mother to Cancer in ’95, I am really proud of Caroline to be taking action.
With my own skills and networks I swindled some Admin’s from HORROR GEEKS (PM me to join) to help create Horrorgeeks: Auction for the Walk to End Women’s Cancer. In about two weeks we have raised $200 for Caroline’s personal donation page.
