PLANTATION, Fla. - Throngs of zombies on motorcycles will descend on South Florida at the end of September.
Rest assured, they're not the flesh-eating, undead, violent kind. These are philanthropic zombies on a mission to help kids.
Plantation resident Scott Logvin helped form an organization called the Zombie Brotherhood that brings together motorcycle enthusiasts with a flair for fantasy and a love of charity.

On September 29th, the group is hosting a police-escorted motorcycle ride from Sunrise to Fort Lauderdale with a portion of the tour down A1A. The event is expected to begin at 5 p.m. Motorcyclists and walkers are encouraged to wear zombie-inspired costumes and makeup and must purchase a pass to participate.
All proceeds will go to Camp Boggy Creek, a camp in Eustis, Florida, for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families.
Chris Cataldo, Logvin's friend, said Logvin approached him at a haunted house last year with the idea of forming a motorcycle club for zombie aficionados. Months later, the idea solidified into a full-blown organization that will host its first motorcycle ride with the help of Bruce Rossmeyer Harley Davidson as the sponsor.
Cataldo said the fun won't be just for participants.
"It's going to be great. I think it's going to be more fun watching people's faces seeing it happen," he said.
There is still room available for riders to participate. For non-motorcycle riders, participants can walk a portion of the route along A1A.
