ZOMBIE RUN 2015 A SUCCESS!

ZOMBIES OF HORNELL

Thank you again to everyone who participated, volunteered, and sponsored the ZOMBIE RUN! Judging from the photos of all the smiling faces everyone had a good time! We’d like to express our gratitude to all of the people that made this happen. The City of Hornell, Hornell Fire Department, and Hornell Police. Of special note are Mitch Cornish for arranging the street blockage and police officer Stu McHenry. Stu also did a little bit of clean up which was greatly appreciated! Nicole from Farm & Family Insurance–thank you again for the use of your space, your heat, and your restrooms! Thank you to Flaitz Construction and Stevens Contracting for their trucks. Big shout out to Mark Smith and the HHS drama club actors who performed as Zombies. The amazing “DJ TRUTH” came through for us as always. Our sponsors are awesome people: Nothnagle, Realtors Marino Agency, Universal Health Network, Stevens Contracting, Hornell Partners For Growth Inc, Larry’s Latrines, and Farm Family Insurance. We’re grateful to Hornell Area Transit and “Driver Andrew” for his enthusiastic assistance! The pizza was ALL donated by our local pizzerias: Giovanni’s, Pizza King, Little Italy, and Cosmic Patty’s. Thank you especially to Wegmans, Hornell,NY for their donation of food, supplies, and cake to this event. We will be compilng a survey for participants, and hope those of you who were runners, zombies, or helpers will give us your constructive input. We can always use more volunteers–we were a bit short-handed this year–and are already thinking of ways to improve ZOMBIE RUN. We hope to be bigger and better in 2016!
