Some University of Rochester students has to run for their lives Saturday afternoon.
Zombies chased after runners as they made their way around Mount Hope Cemetery in this 5K.
Runners had red flags representing their lifelines and they had to avoid the zombies as they made their way toward the finish line. The goal was to finish with at least one lifeline intact.
The race wasn't just for fun. All the proceeds will benefit the "Serious Fun Children's Network," which pays for a trip to camp for children with serious illnesses. More than 58,000 children nationwide benefit from this program each year.
