A Few Words About Us
from Adelaide Zombie Walk Inc.
The Adelaide Zombie Walk is FREE Annual Community Event.
Through our event we raise much needed funds for our chosen charity partner Foodbank SA.
Adelaide Zombie Walk is 100% not-for-profit and funds raised go directly to Foodbank SA and towards funding future AZW events.
We are a registered not-for-profit association and recipients of the 2018 Australia Day Awards 'Community Event of the Year'.
The 2014 event saw a SAPOL estimated 15,000 participants attend the Adelaide Zombie Walk, with the event raising almost $16,000 and 411kgs of non-perishable food items for Foodbank SA.
When flow on effects and benefits are taken into account, this figure effectively equates to a total extended value of approximately $420,000 going back into the community and welfare sector, and each year we have continued with great success in raising funds to support the local charity sector via Foodbank SA.
In 2014 Adelaide Zombie Walk became a not-for-profit incorporated association and is overseen by a governing committee.
Previous to 2014, the Walk was run and organised by only 2 individuals (husband and wife team Ann & Jason Bansemer) and for 5 years was funded entirely from their own personal pockets. The committee is still headed by these 2 individuals along with 3 other dedicated, "AZW experienced" and talented members.
In 2014-2017, Adelaide Zombie Walk utilised the services of Hundt Enterprizes to project manage, broaden and grow the event.
Hundt Enterprizes were an important part of the AZW family, and as the Project Managers have been a great asset.
We thank Hundt for all their assistance and wish them well as they move on to other endeavors.
Adelaide Zombie Walk is involved with the Red Cross also, having created a 'Red25' donor group.
We encourage everyone to become a regular donor and have their contributions added to our tally by joining our group.
If you already donate blood, all you need do is mention to the sign in nurse that you would like your donation added to the Adelaide Zombie Walk group.
This will add your donation to our tally of lives saved.
We are all about giving Adelaide a truly unique, fun and free community event that welcomes everyone to attend, and maintain a strong and focused directive towards positive community outcomes for those in need within the local community via Foodbank SA and the local welfare sector.
Even though Zombie Walks are a National & Global phenomenon, we are proud South Australia and our diverse community, and can celebrate that we have one of the largest & most successful events of this kind in the world.
We welcome you to experience the Adelaide Zombie Walk for yourself. We are family friendly & alcohol free. Broaden your horizons, try something new and you will be surprised how much fun being "dead" can actually be!
