Beware the Running Dead

Zombies haunted downtown Medford Saturday as part of Southern Oregon Goodwill's annual Running Dead 5k that began in Pear Blossom Park. The living, wearing flag football belts, ran for their lives on the Bear Creek Greenway as ghouls tried to snatch their brains ... er, flags. It was all in good fun, though, to raise funds for Goodwill, which for the past 50 years has provided employment and training services to more than 3,100 people in six counties in Southern Oregon and Northern California.
