Austin Turkey Trot – 2010

On Thanksgiving my mom and I are going to run the Austin Turkey Trot, which is a 5 mile route around Austin, TX. The race proceeds this year goes to Caritas of Austin.

They provide:

Housing | Caritas offers the homeless, working poor and documented refugees comprehensive services that support their housing stability.

Food | Caritas serves hot meals every weekday through our Community Kitchen and take-home groceries through our Pantry to individuals and families in need.

Education | As Caritas provides vulnerable individuals with financial assistance, we also equip clients with the knowledge and life skills to manage their finances more effectively through offering education classes on practical topics.

Employment | Utilizing our business and community contacts, Caritas assists low income individuals and refugees find stable employment to support their self sufficiency.”

If you want to help sponsor what they do, please make a donation here. The goal is to raise $10,000 by race day. Please do your part to help!
