Austin's favorite Thanksgiving Day tradition is helping make Austin stronger together.
For over 25 years, the ThunderCloud Subs Turkey Trot has benefited Caritas of Austin. In total the event has raised more than $3 million to support our work to end homelessness and provide people with the tools and opportunities to succeed. The run takes place on Thanksgiving Day each year, and there are plenty of ways you can get involved.
Sign up for the 5-mile run, 1-mile walk, or Stepping Stone School Kids K, and get your family and friends to participate with you while you’re at it. On average, $16 of each registration goes directly to support Caritas of Austin’s work and mission. Now that’s exercise anyone can get behind!
There are 500+ volunteer shifts that help make the ThunderCloud Subs Turkey Trot possible, including helping with packet pick-up the week leading up to Thanksgiving Day and event day logistics. You can sign up as an individual or group!

Fundraise for Caritas of Austin
You can help raise even more money for Caritas of Austin through the 2018 Fundraising Challenge.

Every additional dollar raised helps Caritas of Austin build wellbeing for hundreds of families each year.
