Walk to End Hunger 5k on Thanksgiving Day!!

It's time to earn the Big Thanksgiving Day Dinner!!! Studies show that If you walk a 5k and help other people, pie and extra stuffing are rendered calorie-free (I saw it on the internet!)

Please Join Geek Physique as we strive to help a fellow Twin Cities organization earn the dollars they need to keep doing good work!

Neighbors Inc.  is a local non-profit that provide Emergency and Supportive Services to the South Metro Area.  They run a foodshelf, provide emergency grants, clothing and nutritional assistance, as well as transportation services and daily phone call and even home visits to seniors and other isolated indiviuals to help them maintain an independent life.  They are true Neighbors helping Neighbors! 

Neighbors needs our help to form a great big team of walkers for the event.  Here's what you need to do:

1) RSVP to this event

2) Register for the Walk under Team Neaghbors Inc.: Go to the Walk to End Hunger Site (Click here) and click on the "Register". Agree to the Waiver.  Select the "Join a Team" Button.  And in the drop-down scroll to select "Neighbors Inc. Hunger Fighters". Then Click Continue. You will the need to create a profile and Pay the $25 registration fee.

3) You will be asked if you want to choose a charity for your funds to go to. Please select Nieghbors Inc.

4)If you are able and so-inclined, ask friends and relatives to donate to your walk as well.  If you raise at least $100 you qualify for a prize, and 100% of the proceeds will go to Neighbors Inc.

5) Show up at the Mall of America on Thanksgiving Morning between 7 and 9:30 AM and walk as much or as little as you like.  I you are willing to wear a costume (and I know most of you are) Please do so.  We will try to meet as a group and let ourselves be as ridiculous as possible for this worthy cause!

If you have any questions or need any help, please email me directly at [masked].
