LONGVIEW (KYTX) -Not your average 5k run. The Rising Out of the Thicket Zombie Run put a little more boost in the step of runners with the guts to run through these haunted woods. Partners in Prevention along with the coalition of drug free youth says the undead outbreak is a way to raise money to sponsor their programs throughout the year.  those programs help keep drugs out of the hands of kids.
"It's anything to get the kids involved and bring the issues to light."
Organizer David Dorman says that the popularity of zombies have skyrocketed, and something kids tend to be interested in.

"Well it was something unique that has been successful in other places around the country, and zombies are high on the public profile"
