The Thundercloud Subs Turkey Trot, Austin’s beloved Thanksgiving, raises funds for Caritas of Austin. The event includes a five-mile run, one-mile walk, and a Kids K—all centered around the Long Center for the Performing Arts. The family-friendly event is the largest five-mile run in Texas with more than 20,000 participants each year. All proceeds from the Trot benefit Caritas of Austin, a nonprofit supporting Austin’s working poor and homeless people. ThunderCloud has raised more than $3.1 million for Caritas since the event began in 1991—helping thousands of Central Texans put food on the table, find stable housing, and achieve self sufficiency.
