Ilay Padilla underwent a major transformation Friday afternoon. In a matter of a few minutes, the high school student went from human, to not-so-human – as in the walking dead.
Ilay is vice president of Teens Achieving Change Through Service, one of the groups involved with the Aug. 30 Zombie Run to raise money for scholarships.
When asked in jest if he had a dinner date to follow the makeover, Padilla’s response was, “She’s going to have to like me for me.”
Derek Wadsworth, Taylor Rainey and Salma Srour are members of the Fairfield Youth Commission. They, too, have a role to play in the “run-for-your-life” run. Rainey was part of the group that did a “test run” last year at the Police Activities League center.
