BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) — A Thanksgiving tradition returns Thursday with the sixth annual Walk to End Hunger inside the Mall of America.

This year's event has been expanded beyond its 5K family-fun walk to raise money for 12 Twin Cities area hunger-related charities.

Spokeswoman Amy Lopez says since 2008, the Walk to End Hunger has raised more than $1.2 million. This year's goal is $360,000.

Registration opens at 7 a.m. The walk gets underway at 7:30 a.m. and wraps up at 10 a.m.
