PSA: Halloween is not canceled!!!! I repeat, Halloween is not canceled.
Halloween season has always been a really fun time of year for us. We start planning our costumes and events November 1st. We also start celebrating mid-September. We were really excited for the fact that Halloween 2020 falls on a Saturday this year. It was going to be epic.
We were really, really sad when we realized that all of our plans were going to have to be revisited and revamped. At first, we were pouting thinking that Halloween would be canceled. Who would have thought in March that we would still be dealing with COVID-19? After a bit of pouting and being sad, we did what we do. We decided that we weren’t the only ones feeling glum and we needed to find ways to make the holiday work for everyone.
#JustAZombieRun is going to be just that. It is a way for us to celebrate Halloween together apart! We are calling it a virtual run but it is really just an opportunity to get outside and have some fun celebrating our spooky season. JustAZombieRun will be taking place October 16th – 18th.
During the weekend you and your family find time to get dressed up, get outside and move it, move it! You can run, walk, hop or cartwheel as long as you would like. You can purchase tickets on Eventbrite and will receive a medal and treat bag for every ticket purchased. There will also be chances to win prizes! Yes, prizes. Woo hoo.
But wait! There’s more. We know that some people are yearning to have some safe social distance socializing so we got that too! If you’re located in or near The Bronx you can join us and Strive Higher for JustAZombieStoryRun on Saturday, October 17th.
We will be gathering all of our little ghouls at The Oval Park to listen to stories, have a socially distant Halloween parade, and run around the track. There will be more opportunities for giveaways! And every one that purchases a ticket will be eligible for our online giveaways and receive a medal and treat bag at the event.
