Zombies ate my neighbors, and now they're on their way to Cuero...but at least this time, it's for a good cause.

Bit seriously folks, this zombie invasion is actually the 5K Zombie Run/Walk 2012, a fundraiser for Relay For Life.

This Saturday October 27th at 7pm, zombies should stagger to the entrance of Parkside Family Clinic located at 1109 E. Broadway in Cuero. The course starts on Airport road, and slowly lumbers along at a zombified pace. If you would rather emulate a faster zombie, running is also acceptable.

Costumes are encouraged, so get yourself suitably zombified,and register from 6:30-7 at the entrance to Parkside Family Clinic. You can also pick up forms to pre-register at Parkside, McDonald's, A Special Stitch, and Hermes Cafe, all in Cuero.

You can pre-register by mail, just send your checks to Parkside Family Clinic, 1109 E. Broadway Street, Cuero, Texas77954-2108.  Attn: Zombie Run.

Donations are also encouraged, just make your checks payable to Relay For Life.

The Zombie Run is sponsored by McDonald's, A Special Stitch, Hermes Bakery & Cafe, HEB Cuero, Davita PBC-Victoria Dr. Pepper, Monster Burger, Reuss Pharmacy, Parkside Family Clinic, Texas Home Health, Whispering Oaks Manor, Cuero Wellness Center, and the City of Cuero.
