Turkey Trot Beneficiary Caritas of Austin

100% of all proceeds for this event are donated to Caritas of Austin.  Caritas of Austin has been ThunderCloud Subs Turkey Trot’s sole beneficiary since the beginning in 1991. During the past 31 years, ThunderCloud has given more than $4.4 million to Caritas.

Caritas of Austin believes that when every person has a stable place to call home, they can realize their full potential and contribute to our community. They build well-being by making sure that people have a safe home, access to healthy groceries, jobs that provide a reliable living wage, and educational opportunities to learn life skills. All of us need a sturdy foundation and layers of support in our lives to thrive; that’s what creates a strong community. Their innovative, personalized, and proven approach to building well-being and ending homelessness creates a more vibrant Austin for everyone.

During these uncertain times, the services provided by Caritas of Austin are needed now more than ever.

Frequently Asked Questions

What happens if it rains?

The event will go on, rain or shine. Under the possibility of hazardous weather (eg. lightning, high winds), the officials may be forced to cancel or delay the event. Under these circumstances, there will be no refunds. This is a charity event–100% of the proceeds go to Caritas of Austin. Have fun and stay safe.

What do I get when I register for the event?

You get to select between an adult long sleeve t-shirt, a short sleeve youth t-shirt, a headband/wristband set, a $10 gift card to ThunderCloud Subs, or a custom pint glass. You’ll also receive a commemorative run bib and a BOGO coupon for ThunderCloud Subs.

I noticed I got an email to be a fundraiser. Is that required?

Fundraising is optional, but encouraged. Caritas of Austin supports those in need in the Austin area.

Why is fundraising so important?

We want to end homelssness in Austin. The City of Austin spends on average $27,804.88 per homeless person (PER YEAR!) to provide shelter and food, but never addresses clothing, permanent residence or vocational training.  On average, Caritas of Austin spends $17,000 to raise a person out of homelessness into a self-sufficient working individual with their own place to call home.

If that’s not incentive enough, we’re also providing a prize package to the top fundraiser!

Are strollers allowed?

Absolutely! We ask that you start towards the back of your distance to help prevent folks from tripping over wheels. Little ones in strollers aren’t required to be registered, but we welcome any/all additional donations. 100% of proceeds go to Caritas of Austin.

Are bicycles allowed on any of the courses?

No. Only items powered by the parent/guardian are allowed (wagons & strollers) on course.  Self-powered mechanisms (scooters & bicycles) are not allowed on the course.

Is shipping included if I sign up for the virtual events?

Shipping is extra and starts at $10 for individuals.  $5 extra is charged for each additional registrant selected at the same mailing address.  Please note that we will not ship pint glasses.  These items MUST be picked up in person.
