Pi Nu Nursing Honor Society recently hosted a disaster prep zombie challenge at the University of West Georgia.
"Zombie Run is one of those options for us to reach out to the community to educate not only the students but the people around the school and to help them learn how to be prepared in case of a disaster," said nursing student Lorna Sales.
Participants started at the registration table where they received their initial items, such as an ID band. Each table, 12 in all, contained different items that they need to have in their survival kit. Each participant had six flags on them, and all a zombie had to do was take a flag. Those who made it all the way to the end with all their items with at least one flag left were rescued.
