Zombies invade downtown Charleston

By Nikki

Charleston, S.C. (WCIV)Forget about AMC's hit show "The Walking Dead." The Lowcountry has its own zombieswell, sort of.

On Sunday, the third annual Charleston Zombie Walk took to the streets of downtown Charleston. Participants first gathered at Marion Square before the "walkers" then traveled a route in the shape of a coffin.

This is the only event of its kind in the Lowcountry, and all the money raised will go to three charitable organization including Soles for Souls, Camp Happy Days, and MUSC's pulmonary hypertension program.

At last check, the zombie walk had walked raised more than $5,000.

Cassandra White organized the event three years ago in memory of her friend, Kristafer Bristow, who lost his battle with Pulmonary Hypertension in 2009.

If you missed this year's walk, don't worry. White plans to host the event next year.
