Popular Phoenix Zombie Walk canceled this year

PHOENIX (KSAZ) - The Zombie Walk that some people really love is going away.

For the last two years, the Arizona Hemophilia Association has put on the Zombie Walk, where 4,000 zombies paying $10 apiece staggered around the warehouse district near Chase Field last year.

The problem is, the hemophilia association needed twice that many zombies and the only option was to cancel this year's walk scheduled for October.

"So what has been the problem with the Zombie Walk?" I asked.

"Well quite simply, it isn't bringing in enough money to cover the costs of putting on the event," said Tori Ericson with the Arizona Hemophilia Association

The hemophilia association serves people who have bleeding disorders. It does have a successful fundraiser that takes place in the spring and it will keep going.

"We do a salsa challenge, this is our 34th year, next year 35th," Ericson said. "Every April it is a big event. Chefs come out and prepare their own salsa, different businesses come out for all you can eat salsa."

The Arizona Hemophilia Association is hopeful it can bring back the Zombie Walk.

"Not enough zombies, but we hope in the next year the community will be upset and talk to us and we can bring them back to life as they say," Ericson said.

The Arizona Hemophilia Association is taking donations on their website.
