Look out, Phoenix, there’s a whole lot of zombies heading your way.

The Arizona Hemophilia Association (AHA) is teaming up once again with Lerner and Rowe’s Phoenix personal injury law offices and the radio station 98KUPD to hold Zombie Walk 9 in downtown Phoenix on Oct. 28. The fundraising event will feature John Holmberg, host of 98KUPD’s “Holmberg’s Morning Sickness” show, as grand marshal of the day.

“In our line of work we see a lot of accident victims that experience internal and external injuries. These types of personal injuries become even more significant for people living with a bleeding disorder,” Kevin Rowe, attorney at Lerner and Rowe, said in a press release. “The Zombie Walk 9 is an excellent opportunity for AHA to help educate and advocate for individuals and families affected by Hemophilia, Hemophilia-related disorders, von Willebrand, and Hepatitis.”

The AHA will charge an entry fee of $10, but zombies 12 and under are free. Tickets can be purchased online here.

The event will feature live bands and DJs, a costume contest, food trucks, cold adult beverages for those 21 and over, little zombie zones for kids, and a “Zombification Station.”

Some 20,000 ghouls of all ages are expected to attend Zombie Walk 9 in the city’s Warehouse District at 4th Street and Jackson, from 3-10 p.m. More information is available at the event’s Facebook page.

Donations to the AHA qualify for a dollar-for-dollar income tax credit of up to $400 for single filers and up to $800 for those filing jointly. (Find more information about tax credits for charitable donations in Arizona here.)
