Scheels Host a Spooky 5K Run

Posted: Updated:

It's only a few more days till Halloween and Scheels is hosting one spooky run.

"Zombie run its our second annual Halloween scare run 5k and kiddie run and this year we have added zombies," says Scheels Events Coordinator, Melissa Guzman.

In its second year, the Halloween scare run has increased in community participation.

"Over 120 people. I do know that so we doubled last years numbers, but we had more sign up today so I don't have the exact number yet," explains Guzman.

The goal of the run is each runner has flags on their waist and at parts of the course they encounter zombies looking to take their flags, for many it gets the heart racing more than the running itself.

"You know its about surviving the zombie apocalypse, you know it's kind of tough but I ran my heart out there and I don't know what else I can do other than survive,"explains runner Trevor Dobney.

Speaking of survival, today's runners are raising money to help cancer victims survive their own ordeal.

"All the proceeds today are donated to the Sletten Cancer Institute Circle of Hope survivorship program so we are very excited to donate all the funds to them today,"says Guzman.

Scheel's is happy to see so many out to have fun and raise money for some real survivors.

"We're having a really good time out here I hope that next year more people join us and join in the fun and dress in your costumes and be a zombie and donate some money to a really good cause,"says Guzman.
