CASA Zombie Walk seeking the undead

Strut your best zombie walk, crawl and stumble at the first ever CASA Zombie Walk on Saturday, Oct. 15, at Heritage Park after the Weatherford Comic Con.

Same day registration begins at 5:30 p.m. and costs $20. A pre-walk rally takes place at 6:15 p.m., line up at 6:45 p.m. and the walk at 7 p.m. The route starts at the amphitheater and goes up the hike and bike trail to the Holland Lake park trail and back. All funds raised during the walk benefit CASA Hope for Children.

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) advocates for abused and neglected children in the court system by building a relationship with the child and those who are involved with them such as foster parents, teachers, counselors and parents. CASA advocates visit and talk to the children and those involved in the life of the child at least once a month and submit court reports to the judge presiding over the case about how the child is doing, if they need anything and what the child would like the judge to know.

CASA Hope for Children covers all of Parker and Palo Pinto counties and includes more than 650 children currently in the court system.
