About the Adelaide Zombie Walk
The Adelaide Zombie Walk is a 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.
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.
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) for 5 years and 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 employed the services of Hundt Enterprizes to 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 Renee & Heidi for all their assistance and wish them well as they take on 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.
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.
Adelaide Zombie Walk also runs regular sub-events throughout the year. In order to stay up-to-date, we encourage you to follow us on Facebook for regular live updates, and/or to sign up for our newsletter. Our newsletter is sent a maximum of 4 times per year, or when we have a special announcement. It is also the only way to receive an invitation if we have "secret" or "exclusive" events.
