OK, I would like to know why there aren't any pictures of kids dressed like Indians running for their lives being chased by white Pilgrims?

The MOA event is called the Walk to End Hunger. It raises money for area food banks and services to help those get nutritious food to eat. It is from 7- 10 am  and is the 5th year for the walk. People can come and walk in the morning, raise money to help others  and then go do their other T-Day traditions. It is a win-win event for everyone.

Regardless of the weather, this year will be nice, the Buffalo Turkey Trot should be highlighted. The oldest Thanks giving Day run, and probably the biggest. Have a good Thanksgiving, even if you are a Dolphin fan.

You forgot the Turkey Trot in Buffalo N.Y. It is the oldest continually running footrace in North America. Older than the Boston Marathon.

The Mall of America is also hosting an indoor charity fun run the morning of Thanksgiving from 8am to 11am - I think those times are correct. Just wanted you all to know that MOA is more than just shopping this holiday season.  Happy Thanksgiving to all !
