Event Information

Event Info:

The Walk to End Hunger is a family-friendly 5K fun walk presented by Greater Twin Cities United Way and the Mosaic Company. The Walk, held on Thanksgiving morning in the Mall of America, is a great way to start your holiday off right - giving back before you give thanks!

Since its inception in 2008, the Walk to End Hunger has raised nearly $900,000 to help support 12 hunger relief organizations that work together to eliminate hunger in the Twin Cities metro area. 100% of the net proceeds of the Walk are distributed to the 12 partner organizations.

The entire Walk to End Hunger 5K route is equal to six laps around the first floor of the Mall of America. Walkers are welcome to walk as much or as little as they like. Activities and entertainment will take place at three locations along the Walk route.

Registration begins at 7am on Thanksgiving morning and ends at 9:30am. There is an official Walk kick-off at 7:30 am. The crowds will be having fun and fighting hunger all morning from 7am until 10am, so feel free to join us at whatever timeline that works for your holiday schedule!

Please use the links at left to sign up for the walk, make a general donation to the cause, and to help spread the word to your family, friends and colleagues.

For easy access to Registration on Thanksgiving morning, park in the West Parking Ramp and enter via the West Entrance. Please note: this is a change from previous years.
