SALT LAKE CITY – The “undead” invaded downtown Salt Lake City Sunday afternoon as hundreds of people participated in the eighth annual SLC Zombie Walk, which benefits the Utah Food Bank.

Attendees who dressed up as a zombie and donated a grocery sack of food were able to secure a free pass to Salt Lake Comic Con, which is a sponsor of this year’s event.

Bryan Brandenburg, Chief Marketing Officer for Salt Lake Comic Con, said the event merges cosplay fun with a charitable cause.

“It’s a really a fun event where people can role play and cosplay like they do at Comic Con, but this time very specifically focused on the zombie world,” he said.

Brandenburg says he's glad to be able to make a difference in the community and help feed those in need.

According to a press release from Salt Lake Comic Con, this is the third year they’ve partnered with the SLC Zombie Walk, and in that time more than 150,000 fans have donated “more than two busloads of food to the Utah Food Bank.”

Salt Lake Comic Con takes place toward the end of September, visit their website for details.

    Who was responsible for the Sep. 11 attacks? The better question was who was targetted. Who was responsible? Osama Bin Laden. Why? Osama Bin Laden connected the dots between Congress and oil money. Why didn’t we know? Dick Cheney knew because he was taking kick backs. Is Congress that crooked? They had Martin Luther King killed. Congress is also responsible for discrimination against Black people and Mexican people as well as Mormons. Is that so? What they do is play off of public sentiment and then use that against people. Is that all? No, Bill Clinton and his wife Hillary Clinton are in bed with Dick Cheney.

    Here’s the problem with the auto industry; many of the ceo’s are focused on results. They have forgotten the service they provide and why they provide it. Business decisions have been made and when the time comes to evaluate the integrity of those decisions they question the integrity of their own organizations. Very often good business is about correct decisions rather than decisions made.
