Join Minnesota Atheists for the Thanksgiving Day Walk to End Hunger! Thursday, November 23 at 7:30 AM – 10 AM 

Mall of America – We will meet in front of Barnes & Noble on the first floor.

One in five families faces hunger or food insecurity in Minnesota. Join your freethinking friends and Minnesota Atheists on Thanksgiving morning to help build awareness and raise money for hunger relief programs in the Twin Cities.

The Walk to End Hunger is a family-friendly 5K fun walk presented by The Mosaic Company. Since its inception in 2008, the Walk to End Hunger has raised over $1,200,000 to help support hunger relief organizations in the metro area. The event kickoff is at 7:30 am and ends whenever you want to leave (up to 10 am) so you’ll have plenty of time left in the day to feast and celebrate Thanksgiving with your family. We had a great time last year and it felt like being with family!

The Minnesota Atheists walking team will be raising money for The Food Group, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in New Hope, is a hunger relief organization dedicated to serving the needs of our changing communities through the distribution and promotion of healthy foods to over 200 partner food shelves and meal programs. Once a month we have a very dedicated group volunteering at The Food Group.

Registration is $25, which goes directly toward our team’s fundraising goal for The Food Group. If you would like to register for the event but can’t pay the $25 registration fee, you can register under the “Hunger Fighter Jr” registration. No registration fee will be charged if you register as a “Hunger Fighter Jr” but you will still be able to raise money as a team walker.

If you can’t attend the walk but would like to support the Minnesota Atheists in this hunger relief effort you can make a financial donation to an individual team walker or to the entire team. Your donation will go directly to The Food Group.

If you want to walk with our team you MUST REGISTER on the “Minnesota Atheists” Walk to End Hunger team: http://www.walktoendhunger.org/site/TR?company_id=1359&fr_id=1100&pg=company
