Don't want to face the Zombies alone? Create a team!
Forming a team is a great way not only to increase support for the Fuzzy Friends Rescue but also to have more fun.

Here are some frequently asked questions.

Why would I want to create a team?

By creating a team of 10 or more runners or walkers, you can save money. Each participant will save $5 on their entry fee when signed up as a team. Additionally, awards will be given to the team with the most participants and the team with the best costumes. So save some money and increase the fun factor!

Does each person on my team have to participate in the same event?
