Have you ever wanted to know how it feels to run for your life?

On Aug. 22 the Air Force Sergeants Association made that a reality for Team MacDill and their family members by holding a 5K zombie run at MacDill Air Force Base, Florida.

The goal of the run was to make it to the finish line without being "attacked" by zombies.

The 5K consisted of a competitive portion, which began at 9:00 a.m., and the family run at 10:00 a.m.

The run was held as a benefit and 100 percent of the proceeds were donated to the Wounded Warrior Project. More than 15 people attended the run and 40 volunteers assisted in making sure the event went smoothly.

According to Senior Airman Anna White, the AFSA Plans, Programs and Volunteer Activities coordinator, AFSA is looking into having another run during the cooler months and on a weekend to try to increase participation.
