Hello non-rots, fleshies, active-brained folk!
Have you been asked to stick a KC zombie walk sticker on you and pose for a photo!? I am glad you came by to check us out! Please look around this website to get an idea of what we do. It is all for a good cause and lots of fun too!
You may be wondering “why did a random stranger ask me to put a sticker on and have my photo taken?”
Well I have a 2 part answer for you.
1) Branding. Obviously any kind of business, be it non-profit or for-profit, benefits from getting their name out. The more people that know about our mission, the more people we can help. I always say a plate of food creates comfort, and thats what we do…we help create comfort for people who may not be able to provide it for themselves. So I am happy my sticker got you to this site to see what we are all about!
2) Community. How many times have you gone to a public place and not spoken to the people around you? My Stickers on Strangers idea is not only good for getting the word out about what we do, but it helps bridge that gap in our community. There have been times when a simple “hello” from a stranger was the exact thing I needed to lift my spirit. Kansas City is the littlest big city! With so much to offer and such a diverse group of people, why not meet new people? A community becomes stronger when the members of it can come together. “Judge a book by its cover” is all too real.
SO, if you have been sticker’d, thank you for coming by! If you want to sticker a stranger, you can pick up a KCZOMBIEWALK.ORG sticker at Screen Tee Gallery in Westport or contact me (Peige) to see how to get one.
Want to SEE what Strangers have been Sticker’d so far? Head to Instagram on you mobile device and add us, KCZW4H. When a stranger gets sticker’d they will be tagged as #StickersOnStrangers.
I hope you all will help me with my photo project!
Hi Rots, Rot fighters and Survivors!
Just a few hundred post walk words for you all.
First off, I have the best extended family a zombie could ever ask for.
Let’s start with the most talked about situation. Our #1 most hardcore zombie walker, Hannah!
Little Hannah is doing well. I want to thank everyone who stepped in to help. From immediate medical response, to making sure her doll got back to her, to people staying back and giving enough space for family and emergency response, you ALL were incredible. The quick thinking and quick actions of the people involved may have saved her finger. I will keep in contact with Hannah’s family and post updates when I get them.
For now, if you want to send her a get well card, you can do so by mailing it to the Kansas City Zombie Walk address and I will make sure they find their way to Hannah.
Please write the envelope as;
KC Zombie Walk for Hunger
C/O: E. Peige Turner (for Hannah)
P.O. Box 32312
Kansas City, Mo
As for the walk itself… I saw familiar faces, unexpected faces and new faces! The highlight of this event, for me, is YOU. I am always in AWE when I see the make-up you have done and the way you act…I mean….really, the frozen zombies?!??! COME ON!!! I think I could have watched them for hours! It was the most exhilarating stillness I’ve ever seen. I will have to make sure you are part of our holiday freeze. The work everyone put into their make-up is top notch. I am thankful to be surrounded by such talented people who love Halloween as much as I do.
This walk is all about Halloween and fun. But even more than that…FOOD. My number one priority is keeping Jamie’s mission going on strong. The F13 walk brought in roughly 2,200 pounds of food to New Kingdom. THAT IS A TON OF FOOD…LITERALLY! I always say there is comfort in a plate of food, and no doubt, many will be comforted because of you this holiday season.
I would like to give a shout out too all the people who support and sponsor us. Once I learn how to use the interwebz like a 2013 zombie, I will get the “Friends” page updated, I promise! Everyone, please check back to see the updated link page. All of the people who help make this walk possible are local artists and businesses. Christmas is around the corner and there are plenty of people in KC who can make your Christmas gift list unique, local and custom. Our mission is to Feed Kansas City, so why not support Kansas City as well?
As always, I want to thank my crew, security and volunteers for everything you did! I also want to thank the people who stepped in to lend a helping hand when things were chaotic! This is such a big event, it takes an army to set up and break down. I am lucky to have people that I trust just jumping in and doing what is needed to help.
I want to thank all 378 people in attendance during the Hannah finger tragedy of 2013 for being generally awesome. It was during the prize announcements that this happened. When they called out for an ambulance I watched every single person move in unison towards her to help. When I asked for everyone to keep distance, you did. The rush of both actions overwhelmed me in ways you can’t imagine. To see everyone’s natural instinct to protect and comfort, to everyone’s immediate response to my announcement was proof to me that people are kind hearted, great and over-all…FREAKING AWESOME. You’ve restored my faith in humanity for sure!
To sum up F13, there’s not much to say, except, I heart each and every one of ya! Thank you for a successful walk!

For the Spring 2013 Zombie Walk we are joined by WholesaleHaloweenCostumes.com as a (fake) Blood Sponsor!!! They have donated 4 gallons of blood this year for our blood bath! This frees up a larger portion of our donations to the Blood Bath to go to the Pantry/Shelter, because it is not going into overhead!
