World Zombie Day is an international annual event that grew from Pittsburgh’s first Zombie Walk at Monroeville Mall in 2006 – the site where George Romero filmed Dawn of the Dead - to help all fans of Zombie culture come together in an international effort to relieve hunger and homelessness. More than 50 cities worldwide participate in World Zombie Day, including New York, Pittsburgh, Paris, Hong Kong, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Seattle, and Tokyo.
The aim of this years London ‘Zombie Walk’ is to raise £10,000 to enable St. Mungo’s to carry on its work to open doors for homeless people. Based in London and the South, they provide emergency shelter, support towards recovery and help to prevent rough sleeping. St. Mungo’s run over 100 projects and helps thousand of homeless people.
