Well we all know what Thanksgiving Day entails, that huge delicious feast prepared by grandma and then sitting around taking in all of the football games or catching up with family and friends. Well this year you should start the day off right, get that turkey in the oven and head on over to the 25th Annual ThunderCloud Subs Turkey Trot.
The 5-mile race will begin at the Long Center for Performing Arts located at 701 W. Riverside Dr., Austin and continue its route throughout the streets of Downtown area. Kicking off the event will be the Stepping Stone School Kids K at 8:45 a.m., followed by the wheelchair participants at 9:25 a.m. The 5-mile run/walk will begin at 9:30 and the 1-mile walk/run at 9:45 a.m. Join the 22,000+ participants who are out to get this holiday season off on the right foot….running or walking, that is, it is a healthy start to it! This community-wide event is designed for families and friends looking to run off a few calories before their big dinner and have fun, as well as for the serious runners who are wanting a certified course to train for longer races.
This community-wide event works with the local organization of Caritas of Austin, and since the race’s inception in 1990, it has raised nearly $2.5 Million. Caritas provides a service continuum for those experiencing hard times. They start out with a safety net that connects them to resources to achieve self-sufficiency. This year over 20,000 adults and children have been served by Caritas, making it Travis County’s largest source of non-governmental assistance for families less fortunate than most.
So come out and make an impact in our community by participating in the 25th Annual ThunderCloud Subs Turkey Trot. Afterall, it is on Thanksgiving Day and what an appropriate way to show your grace by giving to those in need!

"Michelle began working with us while we were still in RI, 12 months before we arrived in TX. Once we were here, she presented a raft of good properties we toured and researched, including a home in Georgetown we ended up buying. Michelle was unfailingly responsive, thorough, and helpful. She was even better during the p&s and closing phases, with wise counsel, grasp of subtleties that would have escaped us, and a strong protectiveness of our interests. She's a superb realtor, more a friend by the end, and we would recommend her highly to anyone searching for a home in central TX."
