Zombies have been having a very big moment in pop culture, so it’s no wonder local charity Shoes4Sacramento is trying to get in on the action. With the goal of collecting shoes to distribute to those in need in the Sacramento region, Shoes4Sacramento is hosting a Zombies vs. Humans Flag Football Event, held at the Fair Oaks Park soccer field on Aug. 31. Anyone can sign up and come out to play at the all-day, family-friendly event. Players have to pick a team—zombies or humans. To sweeten the deal, the event will have makeup artists on the field to paint zombie players with zombie makeup and human players with battle blood. Those players who bring a pair of shoes in good condition for donation will receive 50 percent off their ticket. All proceeds for this event go to Shoes4Sacramento, so pack a picnic (and maybe a towel to wipe the makeup off), grab a pair of sneakers and come tussle with the undead for a good cause.
