Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I heard the Mall of America will be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. Will the Walk to End Hunger still happen?
A: Yes! The Walk to End Hunger is still on, even though the Mall of America will be closed.
Q: Can I use the same log-in that I had for last year’s registration?
A: Yes, if you created an account for the 2016 Walk to End Hunger you can use the same username and password.
Q: My sister and I want to be on the same team, but she wants to walk on behalf of one agency and I want to walk on behalf of a different agency. What should we do?
A: Unfortunately, all members of a team need to either: (a) be supporting the General Fund, or (b) be supporting one specific agency. The set-up of the site doesn’t allow for teams to have members supporting different agencies. There are a couple of ways that you and your sister can move forward: you could choose for everyone on your Team to register for the General Fund and have the proceeds split evenly amongst all agencies, or you can each choose to register individually for the agency you wish to support. If you choose to register individually, you can still walk together and celebrate your efforts together, even if you aren’t registered as being on the same team.
Q: I want to register for the event, but I am not able to pay the $25 registration fee. Can I still attend?
A: Yes– you can still register for the event and raise funds from friends and family to support our cause. 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, which is intended to be for children under 18. No registration fee will be charged if you register as a “Hunger Fighter Jr.”.
Q: Is the Walk outside or inside the Mall of America?
A: The Walk to End Hunger is held inside the Mall. Registration will take place on the East Broadway entrance on Floors 1 and 2 . The event kick-off will start in the Mall of America Rotunda at 7:30am.
Q: Where do I park? How do I know where to go?
A: You will want to park in the East Parking Ramp on P1 or P2. Registration will take place on floors 1 and 2 of the East Broadway entrance, right by SeaLife. You can find a map of the Mall of America here.
Q: Are donations on your website secure?
